Breakwater No.15 is an artwork by Yury Pervushin.
It is difficult to feel in love with a “pole hammered into the water”. As in other works by Yury Pervushin, the detail is more powerful than the object itself. Apparently, opportunely rarefied and filtered through the eyes of imagination. It shows vitality and poetry of its own, totally independent. Obviously, an abstract work is “readable” in very different ways and give rise to different moods. Even in this large canvas (130 x 130 cm) the white is ruling. An oneiric white. A magic white, from which the ending part of the breakwater seems to emerge. And the abstraction, the sense of unreality is obtained just bringing out the cutting and the grains of the wood, the strokes of its physical thickness and the marks of the time. The result is a surreal effect to perceive. It seems like we are looking to something mysterious appearing on the surface from a sea of milky liquid.
