“James Faulkner’s novel ‘The Sound And The Fury’ was about the merciless power of time which can bring destruction to people’s lives. The title itself came from Shakespeare’s Macbeth:
“Life’s but a walking shadow… it is a tale. Told by a madman, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.”
Macbeth’s tragic fate notwithstanding, this painting is about the awesome power of the ocean, which like time, has no mercy, no beginning, no end, and seemingly no purpose.
Yet, when we stand at the very edge of it, mesmerized by the movement of the waves, it is hard not to believe that somewhere in there lies a secret to the order of all things, past, present, and future.” – Alexander Volkov
Enthusiasts and connoisseurs searching for Alexander Volkov art can find the artist’s work at the Marcus Ashley Gallery. This brick-and-mortar establishment has been in business for over 18 years, carefully curating the works of famous artists.
Volkov’s dramatic representation of nature appears in Sound And The Fury. Taking thematic inspiration from James Faulkner’s book, the artist captures the imposing power of the ocean. While it is tumultuous, brutal, and all-consuming, the ocean is often regarded as just another body of water.
It represents a creation that has always been around and will continue to exist even after we’re gone. The artist paints with enthusiasm and accurate brushwork to translate its turbulent and relentless vigor. Given how the heavens heave, the turquoise waters may have just met their match.
This brilliant painting will give any room or spacious corridor an instant facelift. The staff at the Marcus Ashley Gallery can be contacted for inquiries on how to buy this piece.
