The Black Rock by Nikolay Yanakiev

Artwork Description

A beautiful abstract painting by Nikolay Yanakiev, part of his first virtual solo exhibition on the ArtWizard Platform. The legend has it that « The Black Rock » was a fully-rigged 19th century British trading ship that was found shipwrecked on the Island and overgrown by the jungle. According to the legend, the ship carried a cargo of slaves, dynamite, and other equipment intended for mining. In the midst of a large storm at sea, a massive wave swept the vessel inland, causing it to crash violently into the statue of Taweret, thus toppling the structure, leaving only the foot of the statue intact. This wave carried the ship far into the interior of the Island where it finally came to rest in an area known as the "Dark Territory". In this way the artist saw the dark ship all on red and black abstract colours, symbolising the dark terrotories of the Canary Islads.
