about this painting:
An invisible kiss
The first feeling we receive when looking at the marvellous canvas by Leonid Afremov is that there should be somebody near us whom we are kissing. The kiss the painting presupposes is invisible and take place just in our minds, while the very canvas serves as a background. Such a cityscape thus becomes more than just a painting, which proves the great talent of its creator whose artworks are always likely to impress even the most fastidious connoisseurs of art.
Overcoming its nature
Provided you feel this kind of kiss when looking at the marvellous canvas, it is interesting to know the nature of this effect. To make you feel the kiss painting should overcome its nature and lead a dialog with you, inviting you to participate in the process of co-creation. What is then your task?
1. You should be brave enough to become a co-creator, for bravery is the fire of our imagination.
2. You should remember that co-creation is a dialog, not a soliloquy. You should be able to speak to the artwork and simultaneously listen to what it is speaking.
The urban winter tale
Looking at this marvellous painting by Leonid Afremov, we see a winter city that looks quite quiet and European. It is evening, and the gloom reigns there. The rows of leafless trees stand on both banks of a canal whose water is silent, quiet and cold. The ground is covered with a thin layer of snow. Two distant houses dilute the dusky twilight with their pale windows gingerly glowing here and there. The lampposts stand candle-like in the distance, humble and silent. The sky is slowly changing its colours above the empty streets, where no person is seen. An arch bridge connects two banks of the canal, with its surface reflecting the enchanting night. Suddenly you feel that you need another person’s lips to be connected with yours alike. And thus the picture of the bridge turns into a background to the kiss picture taking place in your mind.
This charming canvas by Leonid Afremov will become an ideal decoration for your living room, so it is high time for you to buy it and enjoy this mysterious city depicted in the painting.
