Abi Ola Horse Riding (2022) Oil, fabrics, screen print, and digital drawings on fabric


Artwork Description

Size: 60 x 65 cm

Nestled within a lush sylvan setting, this evocative work captures a commanding figure riding a noble horse, traversing a woodland.

The backdrop is adorned with a harmonious marriage of William Morris’ iconic orange tree motif and the richly textured Kuba cloth, an emblematic textile hailing from Central Africa. These patterns work together to create a vivid tapestry of lively trees, evoking a wildlife-like scene.

The depiction finds its genesis in the storied Bayeux tapestry, resurfacing here as a poignant tribute to the historic Battle of Hastings.
