‘Lindsay Bryant: Equus’ on display at Kaddatz Gallery [UPDATED]Published 3:58am Monday, July 22, 2013 Updated 6:02am Monday, July 22, 2013
Lindsay Bryant was born in Wyoming, but spent most of her life in Minnesota. Although her interest in horses began around the age of 7, art was always her first love. Bryant fondly remembers scribbling in her mother’s books when she was as young as three years old.
Today she combines her love for both art and horses into a successful career as an equine artist. Her work combines the classic western aesthetic with a very contemporary edge.
In an interview with The Equinest, Bryant states “I try to make my equine art something truthful yet fresh and interesting, with an underlying American Western aesthetic. My goal has always been to make art that can be appreciated by both the common cowboy and the art connoisseur.”
Many of her works break down the horse into almost abstracted parts, focusing on the beauty of the shapes and lines.
Her Horsebeat series is comprised of line drawings that capture the mane, back, and tail of a horse in action. Through the form Bryant is able to convey the power of her subject matter.
“Lindsay Bryant: Equus” will be on exhibition at the Kaddatz Gallery from July 23 through Sept. 13, with an artists talk and reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday. This exhibition is sponsored by Red Horse Ranch Arena.
