About The Artwork

Painting oil stick and acrylic on canvas, There is a very long tradition of horse paintings, horses have marched through the centuries right along with mankind. We know that along with other animals, horses were depicted in many ancient cave dwellings in both Europe and north Africa. At Lascaux and many sites across Spain and France, ancient rock art is to be found and roughly a third of it all is that of horses. Horses were always valued by those who used them for labor and transportation, or the wealthy for whom it was a symbol of prestige and power and status. I have noticed that as usual art history was lacking of powerful horse portraits with female riders. We have depictions of lady Godiva, Countess of Mercia, was an English noblewoman who, according to a legend dating at least to the 13th century, rode naked – covered only in her long hair – through the streets of Coventry to gain a remission of the oppressive taxation that her husband imposed on his tenants. BDE is my own personal symbol, fulfilled fantasy of the power and prestige that is above and opossed to any class, race or gender segregations.

Marcelina is a UK based contemporary artist working with mixed media approaches to print, painting and drawing. She often draws inspirations from her Polish heritage, looking to religious iconography and folk tales, as well as childhood memories, the power of dreams, spirituality, sexuality, and the human condition. According to her Mum, Marcelina started drawing before she could properly speak. She has been featured in publications including Booooooom, Bomb, Art Maze, Create Magazine, Digital Arts, Vogue, Refinery29, The NY Times, Der Spiegel and Ballad Of Magazine. She exhibits work throughout the UK as well as internationally and was a featured artist of the 2017 edition of the London Illustration fair and led a The Big Draw sketch walk for Apple. Marcelina is also a founder of artbrand Mesh Studio. Marcelina says ‘I like to play at the tense borders between lust and innocence; joy and sadness; fun and pain. My interest in juxtaposition comes from my origins and fascination with East European culture which was eloquently described by Grayson Perry as ‘nowhere else could such horrific grief be met with such fairly-tale romanticism’. ‘I tend to utilise nature as a metaphor for everyday feelings and headaches. My recent work also dwells into themes of self acceptance, body positivity, representations of the female sexuality, gender, migration, and society. Although some of the subjects I take on are often quite dark I like to think that there is some humour and light in my finished artwork.’
