Iris, the horse



2011 6′ x 2′ x 4′ Acrylic paint on fiberglass horse statue According to Greek mythology, “Iris” was the soul of the rainbow, traveling with the speed of the wind. When painting “Iris”, my goal was to depict a lively racehorse with a strong sense fiery rhythm, inspired by the charged potential energy surging throughout the horse. The vibrant colors echo the fierce tempo of its fluctuating existence, as a racehorse, constantly in action. About 70 layers of individual colors were used to paint the horse, simulating Neo-Impressionistic practices. With no definitive form to the abstract patterns, the observer optically mixes the colors within their mind, constructing “newer” colors and paths for the eye to travel.
