ABOUT THE COLLECTION By Artist Braeden Cox
The Swan has been a subject of art and culture for millennia, from the myth of Leda to Swan Lake, representing elegance, grace and royalty, as well as power and seduction.
The image of the Bull has been iconic world-wide as long as people have made pictures. From ancient cave walls to modern art the bull has been a powerful subject for artists and painters. Competition occurs when a younger bull challenges the older bull. For me, that old bull represents the history of art, endlessly challenged and eventually conquered.
The landscape conveys the magic and musicality of the night, the soft evening dark, the dancing fragments of nature in the air and the rush of wind that picks them up and carries them aloft.
Alexander the great conquered the world while riding his warhorse Bucephalus. This classical image of his horse is a powerful reminder that as an artist, especially a female artist, I’m constantly required to fight for what I believe in with strength and conviction.
Taking inspiration from Jacques-Louis David’s painting “The Coronation of Napoleon” showing the general crowning himself, I’ve metaphorically applied the concept to my own relationship with the art world.
