36" x 24" (92 cm x 61 cm)
Inspired by the races at Belmont, NY, this artwork celebrates the intensity of the pack approaching the wire.
I used many cottons, silks, jacquard sateens, and faux leathers. Quilting highlights the contours of the musculature and clothing as they whipped past the crowd.
The border is chocolate micro fleece, gallery wrapped around a stretched canvas frame, wired for hanging.
