Study of a War Horse with Arsenal
90cm x 120cm
Acrylic and Charcoal on Canvas
This theme is a recurrent one for the artist. The war horse is a story of the exponential speed by which warfare technology evolve. About only a century ago, the horse was still at the forefront of military power, it has been so for millennia. But in a blink of an eye, technology eradicated all the history of the war horse and made it obsolete. In this loose paint study, one sees a horse surrounded by outlines of bullets, artillery and long-range missiles. These outlines may be interpretated as drafts or premonitions of what is to happen to one of the most beautiful and ‘noble’ animals that shared with humans the sorrow of war.
