Onyx, a beautiful and emotive Limited Edition artwork by Rob Hefferan. From the Equestrian Collection.Ancient folklore relates that Onyx is a protector from evil and the guardian of harmonious relationships, the contrast and strength of its black and white layers symbolising the love between two people. What an image to represent strength, harmony and love! Capturing light, shadows and reflections perfectly, Rob Hefferan's paintings are so intricately detailed that it is not surprising that some can take a hundred and fifty hours to complete. Critically acclaimed and an inspiration to others, Hefferan truly is an admirable artist whose equine art is instantly recognisable.
About The Equestrian Collection
Hefferan continues his defence for realism in a new series of paintings, capturing the allure of realism with the magic of the abstract. Unlike anything he has done before, swapping the figurative for the animal, horses are taking centre stage. Each realistically painted horse is surrounded in an abstract backdrop, some colourful, some dark, exuding a variety of moods and tones. Despite this change in subject matter however Hefferan has retained the ruthless finesse and compelling drama that he is known for. Full of energy and motion due to intricately placed brushstrokes and an ingenious use of colour the horses truly come alive on the paper. They have their own stories to tell as much as the characters in Rob’s figurative work. The horses appear wild, untamed with human-like emotions similar to that of Michael Morpurgo’s famous War Horse.
