Alexander Grigorev’s October (The 12 Months (2015), replicates the loose, dab like brushstrokes of impressionist painting. The wood and gold leaf material also represent nature and the shiny surface is able to capture the light. This piece would complement any room, as it catches and reflects the changing light.
Impressionism was an art movement developed by Claude Monet and other Paris-based artists in the early 1960s. The movement was characterised by a desire to paint outdoors – en plein air – rather than in the studio. Meticulous planning and studies were commonly adopted to paint in the studio, whereas in the outdoors, artists were able to capture the subject with a sense of immediacy.
Many impressionists became fascinated with natural landscapes and capturing the transient and momentary effect of changing light.
To capture these fleeting moments, paint strokes became rapid and loose, broken into separate dabs, rather than being blended together for realistic representations.
The desire to capture the everchanging landscape has since then been translated into the art of sculpture through the interest in natural subject matters, as well as a more relaxed approach to method.
