Noel McKenna 'Mountain with Rider 1987'

Regular price $1,800.00

Noel McKenna s work brings to life a universe often inhabited by placid animals or lone figures. In 'Mountain with Rider'1987 his subject is a mounted stead moving across a paddock. As always, the vista is strangely empty and yet somehow enchanting. McKenna s affection for horses stretches back to his childhood spent at the races with his father. So formative is this affinity, that the artist has curated shows about horses and can be scene in this video from 1986, painting one. For McKenna, races horses are a curious, tragic breed - social animals who are forced to be solitary. McKenna' s work is represented in most prominent public collections. He is also the recipient of many prestigious prizes, including five times for the Trustees Watercolour Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
