“Somewhere along the coast of Maine, I saw this old boat tethered to a wooden pier. It was a calm day with sunlight filtering through the haze and filling the water with an inner glow. It seemed as if you could just cut the line and the boat would soar into the air.” – Alexander Volkov
Offering unparalleled service is what the Marcus Ashley Gallery is best known for besides its eclectic collections of artwork. Alexander Volkov art graces the walkways of the gallery’s mammoth yet inviting space.
As a realism painter, Volkov is famous for his take on the behavior of light and darkness. Manipulating it perfectly in his paintings allows viewers to feel the depth of his work. Soaring captures the artist’s ability to turn a mundane scene into one that encourages reflection.
Volkov paints a memory of a weather-beaten boat bobbing on a river in Maine. The sunlight illuminates the murky depths to reveal a scattering of rocks below. Using deliberate brushstrokes, the artist captures the soft illumination of light as it disperses through the water.
Like a balloon on a string, the boat is tethered to a rope to stop it from floating away. Volkov encourages viewers to appreciate the charm in this seemingly mundane moment.
Soaring and other works of Volkov can be put on display for private viewing in the vicinity. Interested parties can reach out to the gallery for swift assistance.
