about this painting:


The unknown drama

Still life is a peculiar genre. It is commonly thought to be very (or even too) calm and quite, lacking in mystery and emotions. There is no denying that it’s fair enough in many cases, but there are no rules without exceptions.

Take this oil painting, for example. It is not about a couple of nice inanimate objects. There is some drama behind them, and the whole picture seems very emotional, if not to say passionate. What happened? Whose game is it? Has the drama turned into a tragedy?

What is so interesting in still life oil paintings?

Sure, we do not mean that the classical idea of fruit compositions is pointless. The genre is remarkable in many ways:

  1. It givesa new angle on ordinary things. We usually don’t notice how beautiful the simplest objects are, both natural or human-made.
  2. It usually has a symbolic meaning. There is a hidden message in every flower or a candle depicted. For those who like this kind of riddles, still-life art is a source of inspiration and searching.
  3. Still life art is perfect in the sense of play of light and shadow. There is hardly a genre that has achieved more in this area.

These are general advantages, but if we are talking about this very picture, we should add a lot more.

What is so interesting in this picture?

That’s a question you have probably answered yourself, but we’d like to share our viewpoint:

  1. Unlikemany other still life artists, Leonid Afremov’s works are always thought-provoking. If one usually doesn’t ponder on the drama of two apples and a bunch of flowers in the picture, this composition definitely tells an exciting story.
  2. The vivid colors convey emotional tension in a very precise way. It seems like the whole picture is going to catch fire – or maybe that’s the gambler’s life breaking into flames.
  3. The picture is very energetic and looks like a slice of life – a risky but exciting life.

If you are into dramatic art full of emotions and inner struggle, this painting seems to be a perfect option for you, even if you disapprove of gambling and taking risks.

A little while I go I received the painting I ordered: "When Dreams Come True" and it is absolutely beautiful. Seeing it in person cannot compare to the picture. It is already framed and on my wall and every time I look at it I become completely captivated!! I fall in love with it all over again. Leonid Afremov is an amazing artist, his paintings caught my attention the moment I saw them. I'm so happy to have one of them in my home!! I have no complains with the service. They gave me all the appropriate information and details. When I sent a message with a question it was answered swiftly and clearly. The painting was sent in the time frame they told me it would and it arrived exactly on the day they said it would. So I'm really happy with the service in general. I'm already looking into buy another one, It is just so difficult to chose!! Their are so many beautiful painting from where to choose!

We received NINE paintings today! We have fallen in love with so many of Mr Afremov's works that we went a little crazy! Can I just say I AM IN LOVE with them. Opening the box was so much fun. Every one of them was simply beautiful! Such a great variety of colors and rich scenes. I can not wait to get them all hung up. We are still waiting one more shipment and are even more excited to see those now. Thank you so very much Afremov family for all of your communication and for bringing these beautiful works of art into our home. We will proudly display them all over our home.
