Back in February I have had the immense pleasure and joy to present my “White-Power and Grace” fine equine art collection to the world. Sixteen large canvases were exhibited in the contemporary space of the Art Square Gallery, downtown Toronto. A very emotional and extremely rewarding experience! What mattered to me immensely was people deeply reacting to the images on the walls while feeling transported in a different world. Because this is exactly how I felt while meeting and photographing these gracious white beings back in 2011 while in Camargue. I was fortunate enough to experience one of those rare moments when one feels completely connected with something so pure and greater than anything imaginable. Back to the show: I appreciate the help and support I have received from the gallery owner, Leyla Kizilirmak and all my great friends who have been involved in the process. Special thanks to my photographer friend Sebastien Auger who has graciously captured so many lovely moments. I also want to extend many thanks to poet and musician Nik Beat who offered to play guitar at the closing night party.
I would love to share a few of the comments people have left in my little guest book:
“An Arab custom says that sleeping with horses in the tent brings serenity and your pictures accomplished a similar sensation for me. Each animal has a character that comes across beautifully. A visual meditation that puts mind at rest and enlarges the heart..” (Eleora S.)
“The work is truly breathtakingly beautiful. The captured images are beyond inspirational. What a fantastic success!” (Lisa Allain)
“Very disturbingly beautiful art that proves horses do not come from this dimension”(Nik Beat)
“You truly captured the sheer beauty and energy of these majestic creatures in your photos” (Lisa Wang)
