“We go to faraway places to find magic, but sometimes we only need to look under our feet… These translucent shards of light that we stumble upon in the sand are like our childhood days, simple, unassuming, and beautiful.” – Alexander Volkov Art at the Marcus Ashley Gallery always finds a home. Every collection, including Alexander Volkov art, has something to share through its ingenious creation. Art enthusiasts and tourists from far and wide come to visit the gallery’s exhaustive range of fine art.
Volkov has looked toward historic figures and even everyday people in his life for inspiration and direction. As muses, they have helped him turn his ideas into a reality over time. Throughout his life, encounters with nature, life, and everyday objects allow him to paint an unforgettable story.
This painting is inspired by the artist’s discovery of sea glass found lying around in the sand. As a natural phenomenon, sea glass is created from discarded glass shards that tumble around in the sea for several years. The result is a frosted stone with smooth, rounded edges.
In this painting, the artist captures the shimmering beauty of sea glass as it glints against a sun-drenched backdrop. The pristine blue sea in the distance adds a lovely contrast to the stark white window. Volkov creates an interesting textural composition with the mason jar, paintbrushes, and pastel-hued sea glass.
It’s the perfect piece to view at length when you need a little bit of inspiration or scenic comfort. Sea Glass and other works of the artist have been mounted in quaint homes and upscale taverns, cafes, restaurants, and hotels.
