I wanted to come back on this black and white painting. Of course I have to talk about the technique which is intrinsically connected to the meaning. I’ve worked on the global shape before the line here. As a moving horse, it reinforce this idea of movement. His shapes merge and are blurred because of the speed.
But not enough to pass through his look because he is totally connected with the spectator, focused on him, on us. Maybe he want us to move, to do something (and this could be taken literally or… not!), he calls us to be part of something. For sure he’s never in the judgment but in an open curiosity, a unconditional love. While the b&w allows to keep the essential with a big and beautiful contrasts with deep greys like I love.
