A line from singer-songwriter Gerald Raferty describes this painting: "A horse loves freedom, and the weariest old horse will roll on the ground or break into a lumbering gallop when he is turned loose into the open." This piece was done as a color study for a larger painting by Yuvak. It is made of acrylic paint, acrylic-based archival marker and color pencils on heavyweight German-made rag paper. In this series, Yuvak is focusing on motion in his subjects.
Hailing from Nepal, Yuvak Taladhar now works in his studio just north of San Francisco. Not limited to a specific style or aesthetic, his process starts by taking a rough idea and then letting his sub-conscious run wild. He begins to work with more control once his ideas and brushstrokes begin to gel. A product of many cultures and experiences, Yuvak has achieved two MFAs and is also a skilled photographer and woodworker.
