First Year Presentation of Work
Geometric Horses was above all about experimentation with media and mixed media. Before this Turner was reluctant to use other medias apart from acrylic therefore this work is important to the development to her practice. Using the subject of horses she created mixed media pieces that involved geometric fragments. Still keeping to a realistic style of painting she was still able to play with colour, texture and medium.
Horses to the artist are majestic animals with so much power and grace. In these paintings she decides to show the every day life of horse and rider and tried to show this relationship. Turners herself has ridden since she was 4 and horses have played a huge part of her life therefore they influence her and are portrayed in her work frequently.
