“Every summer has its own character and its own story to tell… Like a friend’s face that we easily recognize in a crowd, that one summer day suddenly stands out, as clear and precise as if it happened yesterday.” – Alexander Volkov

Alexander Volkov art is a diverse body of work, with various series of oil paintings portraying landscapes, seasons, still life, windows, sea expressions, cityscapes, and sunsets. The artist invariably incorporates two or three of these tropes in several pieces, an effortless interweaving. All these magnificent canvases are in realism style and can be found at the Marcus Ashley Gallery.

Among the artist’s works is Summer Rain, a coalescence of window and season united by the artist’s signature light-and-dark approach. The self-taught Volkov perfected this execution through years of practice. His dedicated efforts are apparent in the intrusion of light that comes in an unbelievably wide spectrum of brightness interspersed with the dimness of shadows.

The light and airy quality of Summer Rain belies the artist’s fervent brushstrokes, which elevate the scene into a dreamlike state. When hung on a wall, it captures natural light and moves with it as it changes its position throughout the day. This possibility would be enough to excite any Volkov fan, and even those just starting a new art collection. The curiosity can be satisfied by a visit to Heavenly Village in South Lake Tahoe, where the Marcus Ashley Gallery is located, or the online exhibition on their website.
