about this painting:


 Dangerous sensations for two

Despite the fact that the plot of this painting revolves around a couple, it is still not about love. It is no accident that the author called the heroes “couple silhouettes”, immediately forming the viewer's attitude to the painting.

Strange sensations are caused by this canvas. The night, frivolously sitting thin silhouettes of a young man and rather massive, indecently snuggled up, not quite decently dressed silhouette of a girl. Intentionally introduced dissonance. A rather subtly captured moment of coaxing passion.

Despite the fact that the artist called them - two silhouettes, their faces are animated, directed towards each other and express wonderful feelings. This is the conception of love. And this moment is wonderful.

They are engulfed in the fire of desire. In the future, their tenderness might turn into flames. But this plot could be possible for the next picture by Afremov. For now, the inner struggle of character silhouettes clinging to each other, like the struggle between light and darkness behind the back of the heros of the canvas, and in the sky that firmly frames the surrounding like a cupola.

At the same time, the picture leaves a positive aftertaste, because we see another love story told by the master.

Color and darkness in the painting “A pair of silhouettes”

It would seem, at first glance that there is nothing unusual about the plot: love, night, a couple in the night. But the more you look at the painting, the more you notice its strangeness, its epicness in a sense.  The artist skilfully achieves this effect using certain techniques:

 - the struggle of two color palettes, uneven large strokes at the border of the contact of colors;

- the deliberately emphasized difference in both size and pose of silhouettes. At the same time, you can see pretty petite houses in the background. A thin ornate fence that protects the heroes from the abyss, from the most deceptive temptation the lovers can get.

This is not the most typical work of Afremov. Yet, it absorbs all the skill of the recognized master, and this is interesting, able to open new facets of the master’s creativity and give unforgettable sensations to connoisseurs of his art.

At first, such a painting is surprising, then you study it more closely and understand that you see a sacral moment, the moment of the origin of love, when a “pair of silhouettes” turns into a pair of lovers.
