Breakwater No.17 is an artwork by Yury Pervushin.
Breakwater No.17 features a large canvas: 130 x 110 cm. Compared with the n.15, the image here is not perfectly axial from above. So, only a physical part of the tree-trunk is visible. But this part is worked in white, still “whiter” compared with the one of the background of the canvas. This brings out, on the contrary, the abstraction of the cracking and the deep marks of the time on the top of the wood, in their strong radial effect converging towards the center. This heightens the oneiric effect of apparition, the apparition of a mysterious object emerging from the fogs of the time, as in a scene of a Fellini’s movie.
