There have been a few posts out in the blogosphere about equestrian chic interiors, particularly art featuring horses. And after seeing some new works in local galleries I’m about to jump on board as well. Having been a rider of horses in my youth I have always been drawn to these gorgeous beasts. In fact, I’m pretty sure I asked for one for Christmas a few years running (no dice). They are so elegant yet powerful and for some reason make a fantastic subject for over scale artwork! Her are some images that show the variety of looks created by equestrian themed art:
I was perusing Art.com for something completely different when I came across this amazing time lapse print of a jockey riding. I absolutely LOVE it- but have no walls to put it on right now. Drat.
When I worked at a Newbury Street art gallery right after college the gallery across the street, Chase (there are over 40 galleries on Newbury, did you know that?) had a exhibition of artist Joseph Piccollo and it stopped me dead in my tracks. Such drama, such scale! And can I remind you these are drawings! I cannot imagine the time each took.
While I was perusing the fantastic Webster & Co. showroom yesterday I saw the work of photographer Shelli Breidenbach in the Ralph Lauren display area. Her pictures are disarmingly beautiful in their unique staging and composition (I wish I had my camera with me to show you the gorgeous set up they have in the showroom right now).
