Imagine an alarmed horse with wild eyes and head held high. His haunches are bunched, his feet are already moving underneath him and every fiber is poised for an action yet to be decided upon. That moment shivers with alert readiness is something we recognize in our blood, and bone. Using the horse as a subject, these paintings attempt to evoke an emotional recognition. Horses are instinctive in a physical way; they stand securely in their unique place in nature and speak to me on a visceral level and can remind us of our own animal skin. For me I can see all of life looking at horses, their responses and their relationships with each other, with people and their environment.
