This week at EQL.CO, we are all about equestrian portraits! The Marilyn Borglum Equestrian Art collection is one of the most impressive collections we have seen. Marilyn Borglum’s pieces are breathtakingly powerful, classic and timeless.
ABOUT MARIYLN BORGLUM…
For some time I’ve been aware that the form of the horse holds deep psychological symbolism for me, if not because I first began drawing angry looking horse heads when my parents divorced, but that horses showed up in reoccurring dreams to me for a number of years when I struggled with a serious long term illness. As I slowly recovered physically, the horse in the dreams gained strength, and I became more aware of its presence as opposed to its being discovered in the end of each dream having been neglected. The vast majorities of my equine paintings are pragmatic, and controlled in the execution, as I systematically plan all or most of the formal elements. It is the choice of the subject of the horse that remains the only element of a subconscious source for me that I, most likely, will never completely identify. In spite of a looming awareness I have that it is my responsibility as an artist to anticipate what the viewer may bring to any given work that I create, I try to temper self-condemnation of my use of the subject, one in which the viewer has inevitably become saturated with sophomoric horse lover’s portraits, to the acclaimed masterful works of Rubens and Bonheur.- Pryor Fine Art
