about this painting:
FLOWERS OF JERUSALEM
The call of the blood
What is the special connection between famous contemporary artist Leonid Afremov and the ancient city of Jerusalem situated thousands of miles away from his Mexican residence?
- He is Jewish by origin.
- He has repeatedly visited Jerusalem on his trips around the world.
- He often depicts it in his colorful and inspiring artworks. And this one is particularly wonderful.
Still life or cityscape?
Basically painted as a still life with a bunch of beautiful roses in the foreground, the picture shows a spectacular bird’s-eye view of Jerusalem basking in the bright noon glow. The cityscape is obviously not central on this artwork, yet the artist used a sufficient level of detail to depict the peculiarities of Eastern architecture. Most importantly, he was capable of conveying the unique spirit of the city that rises like a magical mirage in the desert, with age-old buildings looming solemnly in the distance and splashes of green hugging their sandy walls. Rather than just painting a set of flowers against the wall, Afremov filled the background with a miniature cityscape that makes the painting very evocative and thought-provoking showing the connection between these specific roses and the ground from which they emerged. A white ghost of curtain fluttering in the light breeze adds balance and tenderness to the scene.
