about this painting:
FLOWERS OF ILLUSIONS
FLOWERS OF ILLUSIONS DO NOT LET BEAUTY EVADE FROM OUR LIFE
All customers are taking a remarkable interest in abstract wall art decor and flower painting is always a safe bet. This is one of the most demanding themes that meets the needs of almost all clients regardless of their style preferences.
Techniques that make objects evading
Afremov’s original oil painting called “Flowers of Illusions” gives incredible impression. Flowers seem to evade from us as there are no accurate lines. Afremov uses the techniques that make it almost impossible. The effect mentioned above is achieved with:
Colors, which create the impression of dynamism.
The techniques that do not create accurate lines and producea movement effect.
A gradient transition that is not gradual. It is abrupt and creates a “running-away” effect.
Wet into wet technique that implies adding paint strokes on top of other color. Overlapping enriches the texture of the painting and also contributes to its vigor.
The distinctive thing about Afremov is that he works with a knife pallet only. It makes his abstract painting recognizable. This is highly appreciated by people who buy the paintings of Afremov.
Are flowers of illusion real?
The bunch of flowers looks like an illusion. We see just a vague image of a still life that is far from being still in reality. In psychology, illusion refers to distorted perception of senses. And in art we are free to create any impression that we want. Do flowers of illusion really exist? Does the painter mean to say that we just see an illusion? Anyway, we see what we want to see, so flowers of illusion is a good alternative. In spite of their evasive nature, we still know how beautiful they are and can reproduce the excellence of flowers, painted by Leonid Afremov, in our minds. However, this is just a play offered by the painter. This abstract wall art is surely real. The painter acts like a magician and makes us see what he wants us to see.
The world is remarkable, but, for some reason, people stop seeing it at certain moments of life. The beauty of flowers, trees, nature evades them and only such a magician as Afremov can wake them up with his beautiful paintings.
