about this painting:
ALLEY BY THE LAKE
Power of the past
Contemporary art explanation is as diverse as the art itself. Much depends upon the readiness of the viewers to perceive the art.
Contemporary art reflects the society with its problems of the past and present. It helps to consider ideas. With assistance of art, the viewers can rethink the familiar notions. Modern art is so diverse and eclectic because somehow different styles manage to coexist on modern pieces of art. But this adds some charm to modern creations.
Individual perceptions create the plot
You see as much as you are able to. For some people looking at the painting is a creative process. They do not only have their view upon the painting, they go further and devise their own stories based on the plot that is provided on the painting. Or the plot just seems to them. There are no rules in art. You can perceive the artwork the way you wish.
When we look at the painting of Afremov “Alley by the lake” we also see a story, and its details depend upon the viewer. Alley by the lake is a very beautiful place. The couple often comes to walk to the lake, as this is their favorite place. They come at any weather, so we see them walking under the rain with umbrella.
Old places are like old memories
The painting is clearly divided into two parts. One part is bluish, and the other is yellow and bright. Blue lake and blue sky contrast the alley with its bright colors of the autumn. The alley becomes the borderline that distinctly divides them.
Life is diverse. There are not only happy or sad days in it. They change each other. After the rain, the sun always shines. Alley becomes a consolation to this couple when the mood is depressing and they expect changes in life. Nature gives them power to overcome the troubles of life. Places we love give us energy.
People may like:
· Old clothes that remind of some occasions.
· Old buildings. Even the ones that do not have historical value look attractive for people and they do not want to destroy them.
· Old movies that bring reminiscences of some happy periods in the past.
Old places are like old memories. The connection of the memory and the place is evident. Memory is a part of consciousness that determines our life. That means that memory is also able to do it.
