British Contemporary Artist Launches Stunning New Collection With An Equestrian & Charitable Twist

Established contemporary artist, Lottie Cole, launched her new collection of equestrian-inspired work at an exclusive private viewing in Chelsea, London last night, in front of a distinguished crowd covering the entire equestrian spectrum.

Hosted by Quintessentially Equestrian and supported by Cricket Fine Art, the Collection entitled ‘Living with The Tetrarch And Other Horses’ A Celebration reveals Cole’s vision of “imagined interiors of art collectors” and reflects her abiding love of horses. Inspired by the artist’s vision of equestrian’s abodes, the work explores the homes of leading jockeys, champion trainers and owners, amongst others.

Subtle nods towards their lifestyle choices and inner equestrian passion are explored throughout the new body of work.

In one painting ‘Interior with Elisabeth Frink and Alton Barnes Chalk Horse’, Cole features an Elisabeth Frink Horse sculpture;

“I imagined it to be the cottage of a retired jockey or stud groom. The Frink Horse was a purchase with a big betting win.” The artist explains.

Other pieces have clever racing connotations weaved within; a patchwork antique chair akin to jockey silks appears in one painting, and a country cottage bedroom scene pays homage to the renowned English sculptor and painter Adrian Jones with his painting of the Irish-bred stallion ‘The Tetrarch’ depicted as a piece of art on the wall.

The artist also created a piece for the Mark Davies Injured Riders Fund which she presented to the charity on the night. The watercolour original has been donated to help raise funds for the only UK Charity which focuses on helping those injured in horse-related accidents & their families. The art will be auctioned at one of the Charity’s forthcoming autumn events.
