Original artwork description:

This beatiful horse is powerful and striving forward. A little cautious maybe but optimistic. It is clearly going forward but we look at what is behind it..
This large work of mixed media started as an abstract work. I try to work without thoughts about the subject of my canvas until “it” happens.. Sometimes it feels as if the subject emerges from the canvas. Not really true of course because you still have to work hard to make it appear.
Because the canvas was made of unprepared raw cotton I had to start with reinforcing it by glueing pieces of (wall-)paper on it and applying thick layers of gesso and plaster. This created a nice texture to work with. The painting also consists of many, many layers of acrylic paint. I painted with brushes, pallette knife and also used cutouts and spattered paint with sprays and wet brush.

For customers from countries bordering the Netherlands: The work is varnished for protection and an iron wire is attached to the back to make it ready to hang.
For costumers far away from the Netherlands: The painting will be shipped rolled up with the corresponding stretcher bars. Thus, upon arrival, the work will have to be re-stretched. This saves you a lot of shipping costs and is more environmentally friendly (less CO2). Unless you wish otherwise, of course. Then please send me a message via this platform and we will make new arrangements. (click the button: contact me)

Unprepared Raw Cotton Canvas with glued paper and plaster collage, acrylic paints
