Ready to Hang

Inspired by the beauty and freedom of the horse in movement. Mixed media painting, ready to hang, on stretched canvas. This piece is part of a series inspired by Rosa Bonheur's painting 'The Horse Fair'.

The foundation of my work is laid out in lines and marks. I often begin a painting by attaching charcoal and brushes to lengths of reed to enhance the gestural qualities of a piece. I then move closer, working in an additive and subtractive process, manipulating the surface until I’ve captured the essence of the form. The relationship between the abstract and the figurative is an essential element of my art. My work often reverts to a monochromatic palette, employing a calligraphic line to maintain the spiritual sensibility of my subject.
