ACRYLIC ON CANVAS
In another composition focused on equestrian sports, in Jump, a jockey and horse are saturated by dark red, brown, and black on the left side, and lighter white and yellow tones on the right.
The scene is electrified by the moment as the horse and rider cross over the hurdle, dividing the canvas between the dark and light sections of the composition.
In the abstracted background you sense the frenzy of other competitors trying to catch up to this rider and his horse, who is faster than theirs.
Jump expresses the action of the scene primarily by using color rather than figuration.
Even though the abstracted forms blend into one another across the canvas, it is through the chromatic change that Jump becomes more legible.
The bold red tones used in the left half of the composition reinforce the urgency of competition, indicating the movement of the pair into the foreground by referencing a color that can be associated with life, passion, and adrenaline.
