Win Place Show illustrates the cycle of a horse galloping toward the finish line during The Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. Four jockeys, four horses and twenty-one legs were used to create a merry-go-round of motion, where the horse is airborne between each rhythmic stride of its pounding hooves.
About the Artist: Mark Smollin is an American painter whose works reflect a flair for creating compositions that combine a reverence for concept, design, form, color relationships, line, and different techniques, in a single piece. His signature approach to the process of representational painting allows areas of the canvas to evolve at different rates with contrasting qualities that culminate in a dramatic and stimulating result.
