Over the years as a Sculptor, I have made many Figures. But I only started working on Animals about 15-20 years ago. Not because I didn’t want to , but more due to opportunity. After making a public sculpture of a Horse for the City of Whitehorse in Melbourne, I felt driven to make more. The original head, that I built for the Whitehorse sculpture, I still had, balanced, on its nose in my Studio. Just seeing it standing there was my inspiration but it had to go through a number changes first, I slowly trimmed and simplified the idea.
The final touch happened when I decided to cut the head into sections and Patina the piece blue by doing so, it was no longer a classical work, it was now a horse head, with a contemporary tint. The colour and the slices, gave it a structural/sculptural veil which I loved.
