#7 by Jasper de Beijer
I found this artist recently on the MCA Denver website and I was quite impressed. I am a fan of super-imposed and super-realistic art. The Horse in this piece is exploded by the bomb which is shown beautifully. It contradicts itself because we see death but also beauty. The horse almost has some grace of being a hero in its attempt of escaping the explosion. Nevertheless, the sophisticated technology of man has once again overcome nature. I also find the inspiration and background of Beijer relevant to this painting.
