about this painting:
BRIDGE OVER TIME
Where time stands still
We are constantly pressed for time. Even searching paintings for sale is a time-consuming task, and we try to complete it as soon as possible. If we were asked, we would say it is a big mistake! A painting is not one of those things that can be thrown into discard easily if the choice was wrong. So please take your time, listen to your heart and choose what really arouses emotional response in your soul. If the time issue in art fascinates you, this picture may appeal to you, so let’s try to know it better.
Here you can savor the moment
Why are paintings still so popular now, when posters and prints are so affordable? We think the reason is that painting represents life with its nuances and shades while mass-produced things lack this important aspect. Art does not just stop time, freezing things forever – it gives them a second life which won’t get lost in years to come. This is also one of the reasons why the majority of us are into landscapes so much – they remind us that every moment is elusive and inimitable, and that’s the beauty of our life.
Art is a bridge over time and distance which connects people from different eras and from all over the world. It reminds us that sometimes our hustle and bustle is absolutely pointless because they drive us away from things which really matter – beauty, nature, harmony and poise. So Leonid Afremov sees his missions are, firstly, to show us that we are the only masters of our time and, secondly, to build a bridge between people and art, the past and the present and, sure, between his admirers and himself.
Being in a hurry? What for?
This painting seems to have stopped time for you. The scene was beautiful years ago when the old bridge and castle had been just built; it is amazing now and it will be (if people are careful with it, sure). What provides such an effect?
- Peaceful overtones dispose to quiet contemplation and meditation.
- The prevailing blue color is one of the most sedative, according to psychologists.
- A simple but profound idea is a great merit of Leonid Afremov’s paintings in oil.
If this is what you appreciate in a work of art, “Bridge over time” seems to be an ideal option for you.
