  Art Description

CIRCUS GALLOP captures the pageantry of the grand circus march, where all the performers gallop in on their beautiful horses. The performers, garbed in full regalia and carrying colorful festive banners, excite and prepare the crowd for the show.


Artist’s Notes

In all its grandeur, the circus speaks to our sense of celebration and ritual, which can be found in all ceremonies, marches, and processions. Celebrations are held in all facets of our lives, from entertainment to religon. These ceremonies transcend language and culture to bring us together as a community.
