about this painting:
Witnesses of the past
Most people that buy art nowadays are familiar with the name of Leonid Afremov. On his still lifes and flower paintings, the artist likes to depict beautiful and old things. He must possess a great number of family rarities passed on from one generation to another or collect valuables acquired at flea markets and in souvenir shops all over the world. With a proper choice of colors, this sort of stuff can transform a common composition into a fascinating story inhabited by the ghosts of the past. Who used to turn on this lamp decades ago? What books were read in its scarce light? Perhaps one of those we can see in the background? How many hands have wound that old clock until it ended up here? We don’t know the answers. That’s why the painting is called “Impersonal Roses” – things depicted in it obviously belonged to someone, but we can only guess what they have seen in their long lifetime.
Invisiblehand of time
In terms of pure composition, the canvas is clearly divided into three planes:
Old lamp, two oranges and a couple of plucked rose flowers in the foreground.
Red roses in a tall clay jar in the center.
A pile of books with a small antique clock on top in the background.
Each plane is depicted with a different level of detail. While the gracious lamp (a very fine one, with an intricately shaped gilded stand and lucid green shade) and the blossoming scarlet roses are painted rather distinctly, the jar looks somewhat blurred and the clock is almost totally lost in the speckled background along with the books. The abundance of warm sepia shades applied in small taps all over the canvas make the painting look aged and antique just like the things that fill it and you can’t tell whether the scene is drowned in the dusk of the dimly lit room or time itself.
