Hommage is often used in the arts, for where one author or artist shows respect to another by allusion or imitation.
I made an hommage on Kryvolap. He is a great Ukrainian artist, which uses bright expressive colors to impress a vision of Ukrainian landscapes. The most expensive and famous his paintings are with horses. He has 3 paintings with horses: the blue horse on the blue background, red and green (Look on it in the photo carousel)
Red and blue horses are in the private American collection and the green horse lives in the Ukrainian private collection.
I saw Kryvolap's green horse in December 2020. He is awesome!
So in my hommage I imaged what if that green horse would go from the green dark to the light and we could see it clearly? I decided to play with them on my canvas and dream about how it could be.
So my horse became a fairytale and naive creature. Because Kryvolap is a very serious artist. And his paintings are always deep and focused on Ukrainian symbolism by contemporary style.
I wanted to show some light, easy and hope by my vision. At the same time, I wanted to make ironical horse as an opposite to the real painting.
