Special Report: Live From The Los Angeles Masters
As you enter the brand new Los Angeles Masters, the first thing that greets you are the works of art that set the stage for this stellar competition. The Masters partnership with the prestigious international Opera Gallery is responsible for the two most imposing pieces.
David Mach’s Stallion, an installation made entirely of coat hangers, literally stands head and shoulders about the rest. It seems as if the artist is trying to give a new meaning to the term “clothes horse.” The piece was commissioned by the Longines Village in celebration of the Year of the Horse.
Also from the Opera Gallery is Pierre Matter’s Cheval Mecachrome, which certainly meets Counter-Canter Culture’s standard for bringing edgy looks to the posh world of show jumping. For Matter, this piece captures the power and energy of the horse, but transfers the animal into its modern counterpart – the engine – with amazing results!
It’s not only the gallery that brings great art and ambiance to the LA Masters. From the overhead lighting, to the many white and red horses sculptures, to even a unique piece that showcases a painting on book spines, it is a feast for the eyes. Take a look around yourself!
