This painting is part of a series by the artist that explores the figure of the horse in bold brushstrokes and spare gestures. Although informed by modernist artists and literary figures, the artist has a unique approach to exploring abstraction; the artist repeatedly paints commonplace subjects that occupy the artist's everyday life. Woll is also devoted to repainting his prior paintings—the art studio’s version of a game of telephone. This practice allows the artist to explore the formal aspects of painting while creating an identifiable style.

③ Artist:

Andy Woll

Andy Woll is best known for his abstract paintings of Mount Wilson, a peak that is identifiable from all over Los Angeles, California where he lives. Recently, the artist has begun to paint works that evoke the figure of the horse, another subject important to Woll’s everyday life. Woll’s practice is devoted to repainting his previous compositions, allowing the artist to explore the formal aspects of his medium—simultaneously creating a unique style of bold brushstrokes through spare gestures while incorporating the influence of modernist artists and literary figures.
