Volcanic Beauty (Limited Edition) Steve Barton Art in “Wavy” Frame From World-Renowned Painter Available at Marcus Ashley Gallery in South Lake Tahoe
“I want to share and enjoy art with others to make room for new stuff and keep my mind clear.” – Steve Barton
The incomparable Steve Barton art collection at Marcus Ashley Gallery is an oasis to parched urban souls yearning for a respite from the humdrum of city life. In this trove is a travel series of loose impressionistic paintings. Like an almanac, the set presents the artist’s memories of awe-inspiring sceneries through the canvas. Should one be unable to traverse the same paths, viewing the pieces in their homes would suffice to duplicate the experience.
In Volcanic Beauty, Barton delivers a variation to his signature simple life on the beach theme. The backdrop to his familiar elements of a modest dwelling by the sea and a boat moored on the shore is a majestic peak crowned with billowing smoke and bathed in lava. Departing from his trademark bright colors, the scene is subdued with dark blue waters, darker skies, and charcoal sand. But the artist’s followers will be relieved to find the setting tinged with the artist’s famous palm trees and lively flowers.
This blazing scenery transmutes into a mythical aesthetic through Barton’s intrepid brushstrokes and impassioned textures. It is mounted on his patent “Wavy” frame.
