about this painting:
A lonely girl on the beach
Everybody loves Andersen's fairy tale The Little Mermaid, a tale of love that rejects meanness and gives hope. This is probably why this story was so attracted to the positive and romantic artist, like Afremov and inspired him to create a mermaid painting.
Afremov’s paintings always tell a beautiful story. His little mermaid looks almost like a real girl sitting on the shore and peering into the world that has opened before her, into the boats passing by, into the beckoning lights of the city on the opposite side of the bay.
The world in Afremov’s paintings is beautiful, a warm summer night and the little mermaid admires him. The lunar path stretched from the city to the stone, where the little mermaid sits. It seems to connect her with the modern world of people, making us and the audience feel the subtle soul of a girl.
Beautiful, painted in large multi-colored brush strokes, the arch of the sky seems to protect this idyll and fairy tale. It should be noted that the artist is still a little sad for the little mermaid, perhaps he believes people are to blame for e underestimating the beautiful movements of her soul. The picture calls for special manifestations of humanity, which do not allow not to notice the humble soul, and in this sense, the mermaid oil painting carries a great humanistic charge. They say that often excessive aggression is a request for love, but here silent pardon speaks of love.
Romance in the works of the artist
An artist is always a creator. Afremov is a unique artist who made his own special world, a world in which the reality is intertwined with mystery. The master is able to combine romanticism and reality, fantasy and everyday life, modernity and a fairy tale written 200 years ago. It is no coincidence that to express the diversity of this world he needs a wide and bright palette of colors. His paintings have become almost iconic, multiplied by many postcards and copies, because many want to touch this beauty. But, of course, nothing compares to the original, written by the hand of the creator.
- warm colors create an aura around the little mermaid and connect with the beloved world of people
- the sky, multi-colored as during a salute, as if welcomes the revived little mermaid, emphasizing the magic and unusualness of the moment - despite the night theme dark colors are used minimally, thereby the artist emphasizes the tenderness of the soul of the little mermaid and strengthens the humanistic orientation of the picture.
Undoubtedly, the painting “The Little Mermaid from Copenhagen” sparkles with a special gem among Afremov's unique works.
