Horse in the Road

July 4th–July 19th, 2015

Horse in the Road is an exhibition of paintings by Anna Glantz that presents a cast of solitary characters traveling on an endless road. They are fugitives, outcasts, the publicly shamed, and the perpetually bored. What few possessions they own are wrapped in cloth and slung over the shoulder at the end of a stick: a scrap of bread, pair of socks, loaded gun, and two pearls for eyes. They come from 1960’s Italy, medieval Flemish farms, or perhaps, an occult 90s nightclub. Traveling alone and often in disguise by way of the full moon (or empty moon), they expected to come across a fork in the road—a junction where a decision would have to be made: right or left, over the bridge or around the lake—a moment that would seem deeply symbolic and milestone-y upon retelling, years later. All this to say, there was no fork in the road, but rather a horse. A horse with hooves planted firmly in the ground and black eyes coolly staring back.
