about this painting:
Taking your breath away
Have you ever caught yourself in the moment when you turn around and find everything so still that it seems nothing in the whole world can break this silence? It only happens a few times in our life and those lucky artists who are able to capture this very moment on canvas give us a way to revive old memories and relive it all over again. And it really doesn’t matter in which form of art they exist. Whether it’s music or painting - it’s just priceless.
It’s all about feelings
One look at this art canvas takes you to the same bridge where a second later “Strangers in the Night” from a Frank Sinatra song will meet. This beautiful composition wakes your imagination with its delicate colors and quiet charm. It’s all about the choice of paints and the unique painting manner that makes this view so special. By the way, the painting technique used by Afremov is inspired by late Impressionism, an art movement that appeared in early 19th century. You may recognize the key signs of Impressionist manner in his paintings:
- Short strokes of paint that quickly capture the essence of subject rather than details releasing the sense of the moment.
- Densely applied bright colors that appear more vivid to viewer.
- No transparent shades. In classic Impressionism, all shades of the painting are opaque, as you can see in “Winter Vibrations”.
- The natural play of light expressed in the reflection of colors from object to object.
No ordinary Impressionism
However, in contrast to the works of Cassatt or other classic Impressionists, Leonid Afremov doesn’t avoid using black paint. This makes his art stand out from the mainstream and adds depth to his oil paintings. The use of the palette knife as a main painting tool also plays its part in making his works expressive not only in color but in texture as well.
It’s always better to see once than to talk about it over again and again. Take an art tour of Leonid Afremov gallery to get a better understanding of his works. And don’t be surprised to find yourself dreaming of a wonderful date or whistling your favorite romantic song while looking at his pictures!
