about this painting:
More than just a still life
For centuries, still life has been one of the most popular genres of painting. Especially when it comes to beautiful flowers like those depicted on this canvas. In paintings by Leonid Afremov, you won’t find a great degree of realism. He doesn’t try to create an exact copy of the surrounding reality. Instead, he uses bright colors and a unique style to fill his works with impressions and emotions and convey them to the viewer in their fullness. With an approach like this, even a simple bunch of poppies can turn into a great decoration for your living room. If you have any doubts, visit Leonid Afremov art store online! Here you will find an immense number of beautiful flower paintings that will look great on your wall!
Like every flower, poppy is surrounded by many legends and associations that vary from culture to culture. Here are some of them:
· Poppy is a symbol of Greek god Morpheus who put people to sleep and controlled their dreams with its pollen. This link is pretty obvious given the hypnogogic properties of the flower.
· In China, poppies are traditionally associated with beauty, rest and success. However, the fact that this flower is used to produce opium has also given it a somewhat negative connotation of sloth and indulgence in material pleasures.
· The red petals of the poppy are compared to the blood of Jesus Christ. In this context, poppy is a metaphor of death, renewal and the immortal soul.
· Buddhists associate this flower with the first chakra of the human body that contains the very essence of life and directs the energy through all other chakras.
Just look at these amazing flowers! They are full of color and energy. The red of the petals immediately catches your eye as you walk into the room. Although the color is very intense, it doesn’t feel overwhelming. Set off by refreshing patches of green and a neutral sepia background, the flowers will create a bright spot on the wall and add more zest to your living space. Large chunky strokes of the palette knife give the painting a very modern appearance allowing you to use it both in traditional and contemporary designs.
