Horses and Lovers

 

“Horses and Lovers” is narrative, where horse represents the life force transporting us on Earth and beyond, and riders embody our collective psyche, experience and destiny. 

 

This timeless drama unfolds with the first image, “A Short Journey,” as a hand emerges from the cosmos to either place a child on horseback or to remove the child, receiving him back into the night sky. 

 

As with the child each outcome accompanies new beginnings, staging an ageless performance in a play of transient settings.

 

All concepts approx. 21”w X 20”h X 8”d in stoneware, 2008-2009 (“A Short Journey” is smaller, 12”w).
