about this painting:
Space on a canvas
The topic of space in art
The topic of space (its conquest and exploration, space flights, meeting aliens and seeing UFO, etc,) has always been popular. It seems to be absolutely scientific and interesting only for scientists; however, it’s constantly appeared in literature, the movie making industry and even art! When we talk about space in art we should mention that there are several directions in it:
- Space realism which depicts daily routines of astronauts and the beauty of the outer space;
- Scientific fiction which is more popular nowadays;
The topic of space has been changing due to technology, progress and people’s discoveries. It started when people looked at the sky and wanted to depict what could be far out there. Then artists illustrated books of Herbert George Wells, Edgar Rice Burroughs and other sci-fi authors and later there were entire exhibitions devoted to astronauts, far away planets, discoveries and exploration of space, space shuttle art and so on. It has all happened due to the progress in technology.
Space through the eyes of an artist
Even though now we have much information on what’s happening in space and what the planets and stars look like, it’s still very interesting to see them through the eyes of artists. It’s fascinating to contemplate what the human mind is capable of imagining and how masterfully painters can show it all on their canvas. Take this gorgeous art piece by Leonid Afremov, for instance, called Space Shuttle. It seems to be just a painting of a rocket; however, as Leonid Afremov is a representative of Impressionism, it hides much more in itself. Impressionists intend to present us their emotions, the feelings they experience when they look at something. The artist very skillfully managed to show them to us with the help of bright colors and his unique technique, the name if which is impasto. He uses oil paints and palette knives instead of brushes. With their help he creates wonderful canvases that have volume and bright colors as well as a deep philosophical meaning. A rocket launch symbolizes starting something new and exciting, new discoveries and perspectives. Maybe that’s why Leonid Afremov has decided to create such a colorful canvas? He wanted to show us the excitement and happiness every beginning brings. This wonderful piece will surely become a great adoration to your interior and add some new colors to your daily life!
