Horse at Disco
36" x 48"
Acrylic paint on Canvas
I met these beautiful horses at a friend's farm in Montana. I felt like I could relate to these wise, sentient beings and I wondered what it would be like for them to stand in my shoes, having choices to make about my environment spanning the farm to a discotheque. This artwork also captures a personal identity crisis, including simultaneous guilt and pleasure relating to the excesses of places like bars and discos. It also addresses some of my struggles explaining the choices and decisions I make to members of my family who did not have access to alcohol or partying in their youth. I am the horse with eyes directed right at the viewer, hanging out at the bar, while simultaneously wondering if that is really where I want to be. The horses roaming the farm in the background represent my family members.
Through this artwork I also want to bring attention to the creation of the bar and what might have been in the landscape instead where it currently stands. This theme is consistent with the rest of the artworks in the album Techno-Skeptic or Mental Landscapes. In the artwork I have not made my mind up yet about whether one choice is better than the other, and I seek to just capture the fact that we have a choice and in doing so invite the viewer to feel like a creator in the world around us.
The painting is on a large standard canvas, wired ready to hang.
