about this painting:
We all feel sad and gloomy at times. When it seems that everything is against you and there is no hope for things to turn for the better, what you need is a little light shining through the darkness. Leonid Afremov is sure that you can see the sun even at night. Find it hard to believe? Then take a look at this wonderful still life painting called ‘Night Sun’!
Light that shines through the darkness
The canvas before you shows a simple bunch of sun flowers in a round vase. Have you guessed why the artist chose this very kind of flowers? That’s right, because they have always been associated with the sun and its guiding power. The symbolic meaning of the sun flower varies from culture to culture, however, it always revolves around spirituality, faith and goodness. It is no wonder that such a positive, cheerful person as Leonid Afremov picked sun flowers over other options as a representation of never-fading light. He also supported his message by contrasting colors and painting technique:
1. The palette consists of two basic colors: yellow and blue. A cluster of vibrant yellow sun flowers glowing in the soft blue twilight looks fresh and enchanting giving you a feeling of warmth and hope.
2. The main hues are finely supported by occasional inclusions of red, orange, green and violet. This intrigues the eye inviting setting off marvelously the key image on the canvas.
3. Note the artist’s peculiar style that turns the painting into a motley patchwork. Quick crude strokes are laid side by side forming a densely painted, textural surface and making the flowers in the pot almost palpable.
