To know the horse as a sculptor is to understand how it holds itself with such elegance and moves with such grace, for only with this anatomical knowledge can the true process of sculpting start. Only then can a balance be achieved between knowledge and expression, and create the space and freedom necessary for the sculptor to seek the hidden horse, the one that speaks to your soul and engages the unknown, for this is where the conversation between the artwork and the viewer really begins.

“In the grey wastes of the dread, the haunt of shattered gulls where nothing moves, but in a shroud of silence like the dead, I heard a sudden harmony of hooves…” (extract from Roy Campbell’s famous poem which inspired this sculpture)
