about this painting:
The light of a candle is often associated with a dance. And Afremov decided to play with this idea a little bit on this candle fire oil painting.
If you ever studied ballet dance you know that after this you are well-prepared to dance practically any dance, from classical to modern. This dance requires discipline and certain innate parameters like flexibility and elasticity of joints.
An experienced ballet dancer has a solid base of skills and can learn hip-hop, pole dance, belly dance or any other style they may choose to pursue.
It takes years of hard work to come that far. The same thing is in art. First, you learn the basics and start imitating the classics. However, the true agility is when you create a style that cannot be imitated. It happened with all the great ballet dancers. It is also the case of Leonid Afremov who is one of the most respected contemporary artists of our century.
Leonid Afremov pays little attention to facts and details but captures light and movement like nobody else. By means of his unique Impasto technique, with the help of multi-coloured palette knife strokes, he creates gorgeous canvases that will balance any interior. “Candle Fire” is a wonderful example of an abstract modern painting.
Look closer at the fire
The graceful movement of the girl on this painting really looks similar to the candle fire on the wind. With just a little help from your imagination she will start her gentle and a little bit chaotic dance.
You can’t see the little dancer’s face expression, but her moves speak for themselves: her feet step delicately and in accordance with comme-it-faut poses while the gracefully lifted hands convey her deep emotions. She is dancing alone just like the flame of a candle, which is cheerful, sincere and awe-inspiring.
Every detail matters
The 3D splashes of paint have repeatedly been associated with Leonid Afremov. His special technique helps him to take you to a completely new world:
- Mind the multi-coloured background created in a unusual Impasto technique.
- Notice how the light sourcing forms vivid contrast between the space around the dancer and her silhouette on this painting.
We invite you to become of this romantic universe and feel the captivating effect produced by Afremov’s paintings on yourself. Get closer to the expressive nature of the ballet dance with “Candle Fire”!
