about this painting:
Art in art
As a rule, artists like impressing other people with their works. It gives an artist a certain satisfaction when people get thoroughly absorbed in his books or films. However, the greatest satisfaction is given to an artist only when other artists appreciate his works, for a man of art not only can perceive a work of art, but also gives it one more life by creating his own masterpiece where influences of other artists’ paintings, musical compositions or books can be traced. This Leonid Afremov’s modern wall art painting is just that. Impressed bya ballet dancer’s performance, Leonid Afremov shares his feelings with us and performs the ballet dance by means of forms and colours.
Moment of ecstasy
You cannot but feel enthusiastic about this piece of contemporary wall art while looking at this dancer’s jump. For what is a jump when we think of ballet? A high degree of an inspiriting emotion, the moment of becoming a bird-like creature that has overcome terrestrial attraction. Alas, this moment lasts a short while, and a ballet dancer is to become a human again just in a second. But Leonid Afremov makes this moment of overcoming the attraction of the Earth last forever, for painting knows no moments but those that are everlasting. This graceful dancer will eternally be in the air, her head will always be thrown back, her face will unceasingly reflect her magnificent ecstasy, and her whirled up dress willperpetually be scattering the variegated mosaic of colourful splashes around her hovering body.
Take the baton
If you are an artist or a writer, this modern wall art canvas can help you:
To write a poem about the painting itself and the dance that remains behind it.
To create a sculpture of the ballet dancer as she is depicted on the Leonid Afremov’s painting.
To compose music you think she is listening to while dancing.
At any rate, this painting will be an ideal decoration of any room and continually remind you about the most ecstatic moments people can have in their lives.
