Equestrian Art Announces 'Wild Horses - An Exhibition Of Expressioninst Equine Art' To Be Held In London's Menier Gallery


London Gallery Ignites a Revolution in Equestrian Art - Showcasing in London’s Menier Gallery, ‘Wild Horses’ is a world class exhibition of expressionist equine art. 

The exhibition is presented by leading equestrian art dealer, John Thorley, who says, “This exhibition is, in a way, bringing the glamour, excitement and style of the Sport of Kings & the melee of the polo field into the heart of the Capital.  The exhibition is designed not just for art collectors & investors, many of whom have seen strong returns on equine art investments over the last few years, but also horse enthusiasts who simply enjoy these works in their homes.”

An Invitation to Meet the Artists
Showing from 19th- 23rd February 2013 at The Menier Gallery close to London Bridge’s ‘Shard’ and Borough market, ‘Wild Horses’, showcases the works of two of the country’s most exciting equestrian artists, Vineta Sayer and Alasdair Banks, who provide an exciting, colourful and expressionist perspective on a genre besieged by hidebound ‘chocolate box’ artistic styles.  In recent years their work has appreciated at an average rate in excess of sixty per cent per annum making their paintings not only pleasing to the eye but also desirable investments.

The exhibition covers all aspects of equestrian art including racing and polo scenes.  The two artists being exhibited have developed highly original styles.  Vineta Sayer has the ability to imagine and create unique compositions without recourse to photographic references of any kind and which seem to place the viewer at the heart of the painting. Alasdair Banks’ style blends a Fauvist colour sense with a hint of abstract expressionism to create compositions which are full of raw power, energy and action.
