Essence of Impressionism
Afremov creates his outdoor artworks in the Impressionism style. The essential feature of Impressionism is that it should not have canonized forms. Therefore there is no pure Impressionism. It does not exist. Usually, the term "Impressionism" means a direction in painting, although its ideas were reflected in other forms of art, such as music.
Impressionism is, primarily, an art of unprecedented sophistication. This is an art of observation of reality and transfer or creation of impression. This is art, in which the story is not important. And “Night Attraction” does not include the story, as well. Oil painting art says of Afremov’s admiration in this case and the way he looks at this scene. This is a new, subjective artistic reality. Impressionists put forward its own principles of perception and reflection of the world. They erase the line between the main subject worthy of high art, and objects of secondary importance.
Principles of Impressionism
An important principle of Impressionism is a departure from typical. In art became momentary and a casual glance appeared in it. It seems that canvases of Impressionists are painted not by painters, but by people passing by, who are walking on the boulevards and enjoy life. At that time, it was a revolution in vision. Nowadays it is a common trend.
