Painting: Oil on Canvas.
First piece of my series "The Reprise". The moment when the horse for a few brief seconds is suspended in mid air during its trot. A brief second of "quiet grandeur".
This painting belongs to the series The Reprise probably the most intimate and mysterious series of the entire sample. Marcos Terol compares the rider and his horse with the painter and his picture. He expresses the elegance and distinction of dressage presenting it as a classical painting. This series suggests a number of parallels such as the anatomy of the horse and compositional rhythms, or the layers of colour with the white of marble statues. Just like dressage the paintings focus on balance, harmony and the gentle nature of this form of horsemanship.
