Ribbons of roaming colors sweep across the canvas in Stephan Balleux painting series entitled 'They Shoot Horses Don't They.'
Named after a 1969 film, the series portrays the abstract interaction of paint swirls as they streak around in undulating patterns, leaving the viewer riveted to the canvas. Layers of paint create a sense of depth in the paintings, making those entranced by color and movement want to stare for hours at a time, looking for deeper meanings and designs embedded within the artwork. Like party streamers twirling around at a festival, the lines provide excitement and interest, keeping the eye roaming non-stop.
Textural and tonal, 'They Shoot Horses Don't They' is a collection of abstract paintings that would liven up any space with a blend of intense contrast and chromatic intoxication.
