As it is the year of the horse I thought some spectacular sculptures depicting horses would be appropriate.
GoodBye Horses is a 2009 installation by artist Sandrine Pelletier . The three galloping horses were created using suspended wool coated in black latex and tar, resulting in a stark contrast between the chaotic lines of the figures against the white gallery walls.
The monument to Mikhail Sholokhov was executed by a group of sculptors including Iuliana Rukavishnikov, Alexander Rukavishnikov and architect Igor Voskresenskogo and was erected in 2007 to commerate the 102nd anniversary of the writer’s birth on Gogolevskiy Boulevard.
This is another Andy Scott sculpture called Heavy Horse.
German artist, Babis Pangiotidis created this giant rocking horse, pictured, using 18,000 recycled computer keys.
Deborah Butterfield creates sculptures of horses made from found objects, like metal, and especially pieces of wood, she sculpts a piece using wood and other materials fastened together with wire, then photographs the piece from all angles so as to be able to reassemble the piece in metal.
James Doran Webb’s trio of driftwood horses were created for the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, they were part of the New Year celebrations for the Year of the Horse. All three horses are made with moveable limbs and necks, so each can be arranged in various lifelike poses.
I hope you have enjoyed this small tribute to some wonderful sculptors. And have a super weekend.
