“Capturing Light was always the most important thing for me in painting. Somehow I feel like the passage of light and the passage of time are inextricably connected. If I can capture light and examine it in every detail, I can also capture a moment in time and hold onto it. We all have our ways of doing this and these are the moments that make all the difference.” – Alexander Volkov

Mysterious and magical — the Windows series in the Alexander Volkov art collection stir profound emotions in the hearts of Marcus Ashley Gallery guests. His mastery in realism puts the spotlight on Volkov’s admirable storytelling skill rendered in oil on canvas. His work complements the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere of what is considered one of the premier galleries in Lake Tahoe.

Where The Sky Meets The Sea belongs to this set of paintings. It is an intimate and ephemeral illustration of a home’s spiral staircase surrounded by windows. The work is Volkov’s vision of the beauty of light that finds its way in through the windows and transforms the space. Sheer white curtains blown this way, and that by a gentle breeze, and a clear blue sky peeping through the casements, add to the dreamlike quality of the scene.

Dark brown steps, the railings, and the shadows on the walls provide the contrast in Where The Sky Meets The Sea. This interplay of light and dark is a Volkov hallmark. His brushstrokes are also passionate in rendering the details of each element in the setting—the fleeting clouds, the chiseled balustrade, and window panes.
