Pegasus

2001
2001, oil on canvas

267 x 220cm

Pegasus is a celebration of sinuous, elegant, energetic drawing. Focusing on mythical horses, Essenhigh delights in the curving, twisting lines of their flowing manes and muscular bodies. Like many of the figures in her recent paintings, they seem on the point of bursting out of the image, momentarily stilled in a quivering evocation of throbbing energy and life.
