The San Diego art market has seen many beautiful Female Nude Oils. But an artist that has captured my attention, as a director of an art gallery, in San Diego, has been Serge Marshennikov. His use of the canvas and his realist touch are proof of his excellence. Finding an artist that can tastefully balance the line between sensuality and femininity is rare to find. Pino and Hu Jundi are other artists that we carry in the gallery that fit into this category as well.
In the Serge Marshennikov painting “Light Dream At Noon”, the artist’s female nude model lies with her exposed right breast and arms vulnerably placed over her head. But the viewer becomes captivated by the artist’s detail work on the canvas. Serge’s ability to delicately paint the fabrics and the detail work of the lace texture becomes the viewer’s focus. But afterward, your eye will study the softness of the subject and her simple beauty. When looking at the her hand, the viewer will recognize the true ability of this artist’s talent. Serge Marshennikov has become one of San Diego’s finest artists and we are looking forward to newly arriving future master works.
Serge Marshennikov paintings are widely recognized and regarded. His works also have been auctioned at high prices at such esteemed auction houses as Christies as well as others worldwide. This is quite an accomplishment for a living artist and the currently escalating valuations reflect this desirability of his work. In the recent decade where traditional investments have returned little with substantial volatility and risk, such works as those of Serge’s have appreciated nicely. As a result, if Serge’s work grabs you, a purchase is smart for all the very best reasons;-)
