“The quality of our lives is enriched and enhanced by surrounding ourselves with art that express values beyond their aesthetic, that possess intelligence in their creation, that one can interact with and that will stimulate the senses every time one engages with them.

Over the past thirty-five years I have travelled to remote areas of the planet, fascinated by cultures who live in community with nature – to engage with artists whose work is imbued with powerful connections to their ancestral lands. The awareness that art-making acts as a vehicle for understanding our place within a greater context, guides my own artistic pursuits.”

(Ce n’est pas vraiment mon style de sculpture, mais la sculpture du cheval est magnifique.)

“Pour donner à cette sculpture tout son pouvoir, ou “dynamique interne”, je développé un procédé qui fait éclater le vernis du cheval. Une fois durci, les pigments révèlent une myriade craquelée aléatoirement – un paysage en surface tout à fait inattendue comme les couleurs absorbées par la matière.
Une illustration unique est née, sans possibilité de précision dans la reproduction ou dans la cohérence de la finition.”

To give this sculpture its power, or “internal dynamic”,  I developed a process that shatters the veneer of the horse as it is cast. Once cured, pigments wiped across the sculpture reveal myriad random cracking and unseen textures – a wholly unexpected landscape surfaces as the colours are absorbed by the material. A unique artwork is uncovered, with no possibility for accuracy in reproduction or consistency in finish.
