The inspiration behind Guy 2014 entry to The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition ‘The Winner’ Guy explains:
‘The Winner’, depicts my most recent exploration into animal subjects. The title alludes to the multi-million pound horse-racing industry that is prevalent in East Anglia, where I grew up. The horse is one of the oldest depicted animal forms: its musculature and contours have long intrigued artists, who have rendered this subject matter in almost every medium possible. Here, I have brought together a traditional technique – etching – and a timeless subject matter, twinned with a contemporary twist. The diving board not only physically grounds the animal, it also represents the precarious nature of the racing world.
Today, Guy is a successful international artist, having been exhibited in Dubai, New York and London and has his work in private collection including Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Singapore and Hong Kong.
