Artist Statement
I have worked with horses as a figurative subject for several years now. For me, their physical form and transcendent energy will always be compelling, but the more I sit with them, the more they make me think about the passage of time, both in the sense of collective memory and the pace at which we move through our lives.

In this body of work, I’m looking at that tipping point, right at the turn of the 20th century when cars drove horses into obsolescence, but also released them from what were often lives of extreme neglect or hardship. Indeed, I don’t mean to romanticize a period of history that was fraught with innumerable wrongs and tragedies, both for humans and non-humans alike. Rather, I’m intrigued by that moment when humans started moving faster, with less effort, but at the ultimate expense of our planet, and perhaps, our own sanity. We have grown out of scale.
