about this painting:
YOU CAN SEE PECULIAR THINGS EVERYWHERE
What are dreams? Do they come occasionally, or do they have some sacral meaning? Everyone knows that reality differs a lot from our familiar world, when we sleep. It is very difficult to explain, why we usually have such strange and unbelievable things in our dreams. There everything is possible. Sometimes dreams can even scary us, but, on the other hand, many people complain that after seeing some beautiful and fairy dreams they don’t want to wake up. Besides the dreams, fortunately art gives us the opportunity to get acquainted with the world of surreal magic, images and unconscious desires. Talented artists have a great chance to embody wonderful and amazing new world on canvas. Leonid Afremov did that with his goat oil painting.
As you can see, this painting of Leonid Afremov differs a lot from his traditional artworks. There are two characters on canvas, a goat and a woman with a bouquet of flowers. Probably, the artist was inspired of traditions of surrealism, when he was painting this masterpiece. We see only one goat’s eye on canvas, and maybe the animal smiles at us and winks with its left eye.
Why did the artist paint the goat? Maybe he loves these animals. But maybe this goat also has sacral meaning.
- It is known that in ancient times people worship different animals. Furthermore, gods of different cultures have the shapes of animals.
- There was a god named Anubis in ancient Egypt, who looked like a man with a dog-shaped head.
- In Greek people believed that there was a creature named Pan, who resembled a goat. He was responsible for love and fertility, that’s why ancient Greek people respected Pan.
Who knows, maybe Leonid Afremov meant something mystical and mythological, and for this reason he painted such a cute goat on his canvas. As many other artworks of the artist this one is done with a palette knife. It is interesting to notice, how the woman with a bouquet of flowers and the goat are located against each other on canvas. It looks like the goat smiles and winks at viewers, and the woman flies high, sleeping and dreaming.
Although this masterpiece differs a lot from previous artist’s artworks, you can still recognize his style. Bright colors, light atmosphere, Leonid Afremov’s style take your attention at once. This painting surely makes a deep impression on you, when you buy it and bring home.
