London Gallery Ignites a Revolution in Equestrian Art


Showcasing in Londons Menier Gallery, Wild Horses is a world class exhibition of

expressionist equine art.

The exhibition is presented by leading equestrian art dealer, John Thorley, who says,

market, Wild Horses’, showcases the works of two of the countrys most exciting

equestrian artists, Vineta Sayer and Alasdair Banks, who provide an exciting,

colourful and expressionist perspective on a genre besieged by hidebound ‘chocolate

excess of sixty per cent per annum making their paintings not only pleasing to the eye

but also desirable investments.

has the ability to imagine and create unique compositions without recourse to

photographic references of any kind and which seem to place the viewer at the heart

of the painting. Alasdair Banks style blends a Fauvist colour sense with a hint of

abstract expressionism to create compositions which are full of raw power, energy and
