The Marcus Ashley Gallery is an impressive brick-and-mortar establishment that serves up an immersive, memorable experience. Known for its knowledgeable, congenial staff and luxury services, the gallery truly is unique in every way. For those who love contemporary, realism paintings, you’ll find that Alexander Volkov art includes an exceptional collection.
Volkov has an innate ability to turn quotidian scenes into majestic sightings. In Sunset Morning, the artist shares a memory of passing a charming old bridge over the Delaware River. Flanked by the lush foliage of summer, this scene looks like an illustrated scene out of a Lewis Carroll book.
Even though the bridge is relatively new by American standards, the early morning fog that shrouds the bridge gives a primeval feel; and in the artist’s mind, one constructed by Romans perhaps, several centuries ago. As if at any moment, a plaustrum will tread over the weathered yet steadfast bridge.
Summer Morning invites intrigue and introspection when viewed at length. It’s the perfect painting to mount in an airy room by a window or over the fireplace. The Marcus Ashley Gallery is happy to assist interested art collectors with acquiring Volkov’s work for commercial or residential spaces.
