One of my signature pieces. Unbridled, untamed, yet hunted. An icon. The American mustang. Revered for his freedom, yet never truly free. Cast in a red glow of pain, his spirit is never taken, as his numbers are cut down.
“These paintings are my story. Large-scale, lyrical, passionate. Classic equines, in modern terms of power and pleasure. There is more to a horse than just a “picture” of him; there is a mythology, a symbolism; an ancient connection we can trace, all of which expresses for us a deep aliveness when we see him. An intimacy with sheer presence. Horses are Big energy, and that is what I paint.” DB
