I have always been intrigued by sporting art. There is a certain feeling of power behind the genre. It is also a sprawling subject matter that lends itself really well to an artist. Here, I am focusing on thoroughbred racing. The colors and time old tradition of the sport is something that I am passionate about.
These paintings are done using acrylic and traditional house paint. I love working on a large scale and using big brushes. The smaller drawings are done with charcoal and pastel on toned paper. My approach is to be a fresh look at the world of horse racing. The contemporary framing, use of gallery wrapped canvas and even plywood is done to enforce the idea that this is something new.
