Bet Big You Bastards
By Dusan Stojanovich
This painting reveals the jockeys orchestrating the race and portrays them as the ultimate show ponies. Everything in the race is not quite right, not quite the truth. There are so many factors to be considered in a horse race. Upon completion of this piece I felt a further sense of truth being revealed at last. I like the colours of the jockeys’ clothing and how they pop out of the painting. I hope the painting inspires an excitement about racing in those who see it. I feel the colour and perspective make this artwork special.
