about this painting:
LIGHT OF LUCK
Leonid Afremov likes realistic painting, though sometimes his canvases feature some elements of link abstract art. But how is it possible for such a painter to depict luck? This challenge can be accepted only by a true master whose skill is so perfect that there is no object in reality able to resist being painted by him. No doubt that Leonid Afremov is such a master, and this marvellous painting of his shows us the very nature of luck, so that we feel as if luck were some being we can see. This gorgeous artwork proves to a spectator that, though abstract art is to depict some abstracts notions, they can easily be depicted by means of realistic techniques.
The ways to depict luck
Realistic and abstract music, painting, sculpture and other arts have to deal with different problems connected with creating images of reality. What are the main ways of depicting luck and other abstract ideas?
1. One can find a conventional symbol representing a particular idea. Thus, luck is represented in Roman religion as Fortuna, the goddess of fortune.
2. Otherwise, you can try to produce a particular effect inside the spectator’s mind that will be associated with a certain idea. This way was chosen by Leonid Afremov in this exquisite cityscape.
The fairy flame
Looking at this impressive canvas by Leonid Afremov, we find ourselves on a path in some park. It is winter, and snowdrifts cover the whole ground with their heavy blanket. The snow looks bluish under the night gloom, and the black trunks of leafless trees are frozen in the wintry air. The whole world seems to be dead and silent, and yet it is not so, for you see the lucky light of lampposts standing along the road. They are burning here, amid this kingdom of snow and silence, and their vivid flames remind you of your most precious hopes and dreams and prevent you from forgetting that there is summer in the world.
Buy this and other beautiful paintings by Leonid Afremov, fine realistic and abstract art landscapes and cityscapes amongst them, and enjoy the master’s refined style and bright images that make his artworks so special.
