'Big Buck's - stood on top of Cleeve Hill overlooking Cheltenham Racecourse' - © Ripley 2014 (Archival pigment print on Somerset cotton paper) _____ 2 sizes 48 x 36 inches / Edition of 11* 17.6 x 12 inches / Edition of 33 *shown _____ Big Buck's (foaled 16 April 2003) is a retired National Hunt racehorse trained in Britain. At the 2012 Cheltenham Festival, Big Buck's made history by winning 4 consecutive World Hurdles, confirming his status as the greatest staying hurdler in history. He was retired on 13 March 2014. This portrait was taken a month after his retirement in April 2014, with background elements of Cleeve Hill and Cheltenham Racecourse captured shortly afterwards. The final picture was completed by June that year and was featured in Ripley’s premier exhibition at The Jockey Club Rooms (Newmarket) in July 2014. The portrait was revised in early 2019, this involved removing the leading rein, reworking the sky and adjusting colour tones.

British artist, Ripley, works with high resolution digital composite photography to create large-scale pieces. His primary focus is working with Thoroughbred Racehorses, creating a feel of the equine master painters but using modern methods to create works of incredible detail and clarity. Working at magnifications of over one-thousand percent, pictures can take between 200-500 hours to complete. Commissioned pieces include the portrait of ‘Estimate’ for Her Majesty The Queen. Personal works include ‘Leopard Spotted Horse with Dalmatians in a Landscape’ and non-equine imagery such as the ‘Girl With Flag’ series. Ripley is currently in the middle of a four year project creating 12 large-scale works for the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment (completion 2020/21) in amongst thoroughbred commissions and other non-equine conceptual work.
