Artist's comments:
A very highly strung racehorse is a real challenge sometimes! I wanted to try and convey some of the potential for speed of this creature whilst actually having to take measurements from a very sleepy horse in his stable. All the action of a galloping horse really takes place below the neck. The head is held relatively still so it was a challenge to get that suggestion of forward movement without the rest of the body.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
