The artist is flowers
Turning to the topic of creative labor, so relevant for painting of the 1920-1930s, Boris Tsvetkov writes a series of works “Logging”, which includes the work “Wort away pool and logs”. Choosing a rather unusual plot, the artist finds a successful point of view – from a bird’s height that allows you to build a diagonal composition that logically corresponds to the dynamics of what is happening, and in the manner itself prefers a clear contour. The name of the picture reveals the essence of the depicted process. The filled pool serves to thaw logs with the aim of their best sawing, and the mechanized transport device – logs – supplies logs to the workshop. A group of workers with Bagra, as the starting point of the production stage, is a visual and semantic center. The whole composition is permeated with the bright light of a frosty winter day, an atmosphere of optimistic and fruitful labor, generally characteristic of Soviet painting of that era.
