Artist Statement



Listen to the epithets with which spectators will
describe the type of horse.

The noble animal! And what willingness to work, what
paces, what a spirit, and what mettle; how proudly he bears himself, a joy at
once, and yet a terror to behold.

                                                                                    Xenophon
(435-354 B.C.)

 

The horse, indeed a paradox! A willing, honest servant,
noble and brave, strong yet wild, free, unpredictable, flighty and fearful.
Such is the spirit of the horse.

A flight and herd animal by nature, it is incredible how
they have served humanity in battle, work and play, in fact have been
instrumental in our progress; They deserve our gratitude.

For this exhibition, I have applied paint in a variety of
ways, in order to extract the character and mood of each individual, to
showcase their natural and unnatural traits and attributes, allowing the
strokes and style of paint to speak and tell the tale. (Tail!)
