Since 1973, Ivan Durrant has worked in a range of styles and media, from sculpture, painting and film to the orchestration of performance events. For the Basil Sellers Art Prize 4, Durrant produced a series of paintings on the theme of horse-racing. In a style that references blurred photography and the luminosity of high definition television, he captured the colour, speed and power of the sport as well as celebrating the nature of horse-racing as a spectacle.
