In this Mackenzie Thorpe limited edition print for sale, a larger than life cowboy stands ready to draw. Cowboys are an ongoing series for Thorpe that he likes to revisit as it connects him to his past.
Some of Thorpe’s favorite childhood memories are of growing up in Northern England and playing American cowboys in the streets of his neighborhood. The cowboy offered a playful world of imagination and adventure. The lone cowboy was a pillar of strength, a hero from the big screen who could achieve his wildest dreams.
In this image, the cowboy is leaning against a wall, ready to draw on the figure in the background. The tension is palpable as he’s ready to turn at any minute. Is adventure waiting for you around any corner or perhaps something more sinister?
Mackenzie Thorpe creates his artworks with the purest pigment pastels made in England. This artwork features stunning primary colors: a clear blue sky set against a bright red and yellow ground. The figure in the background’s shadow is long as the sunsets behind him. Our cowboy is devoid of color and created from just black and white tones. Thorpe often leaves his figures faceless as the viewer is meant to picture himself as the main character. We are instantly transported back to a time where our imaginations could run wild.
This Mackenzie Thorpe artwork is available for sale at the Marcus Ashley Gallery in Lake Tahoe, along with artworks by 40+ of the most famous artists of our time.
