An original acrylic painting by ROCKIN HORSE ART by Mason.
30 X 40"
Painted on stretched canvas
You have been invited to ride an existential and emotional roller coaster of dreams into an introspective narrative of escapism. My art is an invitation into the subconscious and is characterized by contradictions, such as the juxtaposition of the individual imagination and the collective, conformist world of loneliness and isolation.
This suggested dichotomy is humorously displayed as children obsessively send text messages while riding carousel horses rather than enjoying the simple pleasures of childhood.
I have been drawing and riding horses since childhood, and use horses to symbolize the power of the imagination and escapism into a world of dreams.
This dream world is humorously characterized by personal perceptions,synthesized symbolism, social commentary, and explosive movement. It represents the confrontation of life’s biggest fears while playfully celebrating individuality, demonstrating the importance of holding on to one’s inner child and never letting go.
