BDE is a limited edition hand finished giclee print by Marcelina Amelia.
"There is a very long tradition of horse paintings, horses have marched through the centuries right along with mankind. We know that along with other animals, horses were depicted in many ancient cave dwellings in both Europe and North Africa.
At Lascaux and many sites across Spain and France, ancient rock art is to be found and roughly a third of it all is that of horses. Horses were always valued by those who used them for labour and transportation, or the wealthy for whom it was a symbol of prestige and power and status. I have noticed that as usual art history was lacking of powerful horse portraits with female riders.
We have depictions of lady Godiva, Countess of Mercia, was an English noblewoman who, according to a legend dating at least to the 13th century, rode naked – covered only in her long hair – through the streets of Coventry to gain a remission of the oppressive taxation that her husband imposed on his tenants. BDE is my own personal symbol, fulfilled fantasy of the power and prestige that is above and opposed to any class, race or gender segregations."

About the artist
Contemporary artist Marcelina Amelia draws inspiration from her Polish heritage, looking to traditions of folklore and religious iconography to develop a distinctive contemporary aesthetic. Blending childhood nostalgia with the power of dream, Amelia’s work takes a surreal look at the human condition, exploring the tensions and juxtapositions that define our lives. She explains: “I like to play at the tense borders between lust and innocence; joy and sadness; fun and pain. My interest in juxtaposition comes from my origins and fascination with East European culture.”
In 2018, Rebecca Wilson, chief curator at Saatchi Art, highlighted Amelia as an artist to invest in, while Saatchi curator Monty Preston recognised her as “unquestionably an artist on the rise.”
She has been featured in publications including Booooooom, Digital Arts, Art Wednesday, Vogue and Ballad Of Magazine. She exhibited at D&AD, New Designers, London Design Festival, London Illustration Fair, and took part in Faberge’s Big Egg Hunt.
