Ilya Zorkin
After the Rain - 21st Century Contemporary Oil Lanscape Triumphal Arch Painting

2017

US$9,360

About

"After the Rain" is an unashamedly joyful piece. With its palpable atmosphere capturing not only the dazzling light reflecting off wet surfaces but even the pleasant smell of freshness, one enjoys after the rain, the present work by Ilya Zorkin is triumphant and emotionally stirring. The majestic clouds painted with broad brushstrokes of light colour take up almost two-thirds of the canvas, giving the composition a great lightness and luminescence. The artist described the present artwork in an interview as follows: "In summer, rain is an inevitable companion of St.Petersburg: it washes away the dust, refreshes and cleans up the city. Sometimes, it also acts as a reconciliation. This square dominated by the 19th century Triumphal gate in the Empire style on one hand and some prominent 1930s Soviet buildings on the other - architecturally and historically contrasts the two Russias: the Imperial and the Soviet ones. The rain it seems has brought some calmness and reconciliation to the scene, making the coexistence between these two worlds possible." Ilya Zorkin is an artist worthy of the old masters whose secrets he studied relentlessly. Like them, he loves working in situ, rain or shine, creating symbolic and atmospheric landscapes. Born and raised in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, in 2019 Ilya graduated with distinction from the prestigious St.Petersburg Art Academy where he teaches and holds a workshop at the moment. Ilya is one of the rare graduates who has been awarded a gold medal by the Russian Academy of Arts: this way of celebrating the merits of the outstanding artists continues the pre-revolutionary traditions of the Imperial Academy of Arts. Aivazovsky, Bryullov, Repin and other prominent Russian painters who defined the classical school of painting of the 19th century have all received this award in the past. Large scale historical paintings, thorough development of the theme, ethnographic accuracy, multi-figure compositions and virtuoso execution is what Ilya Zorkin excels at. His works exhibit solid draftsmanship and are imbued in tradition while remaining relevant for today, gaining him a large following around the world. We, as the Russian Art Gallery, are very proud to represent Ilya Zorkin's sought-after artworks since 2021.
