about this painting:
Memories and emotions
Another rainy landscape, created in a usual for the author bright expressive manner, literally breathes with life and love of life. Paintings by Leonid Afremov are masterpieces of abstract wall art. They reflect emotions and memories of the artist. Once again, these memories return him to his native and beloved Vitebsk, to the square in front of the Town Hall, one of the most beautiful buildings in the city.
Vitebsk architecture impresses us with its originality. Here you can find fascinating palaces located in the most picturesque corners of the city and modern architecture, which gives the city a unique and compelling look. Here you can feel the past and the present at the same time. Life is running forward, getting us into its fast flow and entwining invisible threads of days in history. But for some people, time and distance aren’t critical - they can always go back to their homeland in their memories and their spectacular abstract canvas art.
Inner life of the picture
If you look at the picture carefully, you will no longer want to take your eyes off it – you’ll want to examine each artfully made stroke. And the longer you look at this cityscape the less it seems that life has stopped on the canvas... The blinking of car headlights, the dance of colorful reflections on the wet asphalt, the flash of a lightning somewhere behind the buildings... Life goes on in the picture – you just have to be attentive to notice it.
"Vitebsk Reflection" is surprisingly vivid - like life itself if you perceive it positively. The painting immediately impresses the viewer and gives them a portion of positive energy. We can see a city washed and revived by rain. The road reflects all the colors and lights of the scenery - car headlights, street lights and traffic lights, lights illuminating the Town Hall.
The Baroque building stands proudly over the square of the city, fresh evening air makes you a little dizzy, the silence of the evening city is occasionally disturbed by passing cars, the clatter of heels and the clock bell on the Town Hall tower, which remind us that despite the misleading silence life moves on.
Balance of composition
The composition of "Vitebsk Reflection" is surprisingly clear and correct:
The "entrance into the picture” is clearly defined – a long road that leads to the Town Hall.
The Town Hall is the central element of the cityscape.
Finally, a colorful wreath of this symphony of city life is a bright, vibrant sky.
The picture is divided into two parts. The lower part is painted in pastel, as if it was still hidden by the veil of light rain - here we can observe just a few colors: green, dark green, blue, yellow. At the same time, the sky surprises us with its clarity, intensity and variety of shades. It seems that we lifted our heads up right at the very moment when fireworks started! Truly, a wonderful ode to the joy of life, the quintessence of the holiday spirit!
