about this painting:
From fruits to shoes and back
We know Leonid Afremov as the author of spectacular cityscapes obviously prevailing in his online art gallery. But he also creates a good deal of still lifes and flower paintings that may be more reserved, but not less appealing. This picture is living proof of that.
Detailing the composition
How imaginative can it be to paint fruits? A couple of big red apples, a particularly ripe peach heavy with sweet juice and the cheerfulness of lemon combined together on one plate. Looks nice and tasty, but something is definitely missing. What if we add some more dishes like a glass of champagne or a flowery tea cup? Or even a bunch of flowers in a tall vase? No, that has all been done before! We need something new, something fresh and unexpected… And that’s when a gracious black shoe comes into play. Now we don’t even need the plate! If only we could think of something interesting to do with the fruits as well… Why don’t we cut some of them to reveal their delicate insides? The warmth of a bared peach kernel on one hand and a tender red dimple where it used to be on the other – doesn’t it make our still life profoundly intimate? And the lemon… We don’t need the entire lemon! Just a piece of its skin. Twisted playfully around the shoe strap, it adds grace and zest to the picture. Finished! Our composition looks beautiful, unusual and thought-provoking. It’s ready to hit the wall!
Where will it fit best?
The only question left is where to hang it. When choosing a perfect place for this elegant still life painting, consider some aspects of your apartment design:
- Being rather universal in theme and color, the picture will benefit any type of interior, from classic to modern-style.
- The use of predominantly light shades requires a background of a darker color as well as sufficient lighting to ensure all details of the scene are easily noticeable.
- Matching the painting with similarly-styled wall art will help you achieve design integrity and make your wall more vivid.
This delicate and intriguing painting will make a fine addition to your art collection. Make your home a better place with a couple of Leonid Afremov pictures that retain their unique charm regardless of the genre choice!
