A Hackney for a Society

For several years now I’ve had a concept for a life size horse sculpture and the perfect place where it should be installed. Time has come for it to become a reality. To explain the process a bit  smaller sculptures are the bread and butter of an artist, not the big ones.  The large ones have lots of panache; large and visually striking monumental sculptures can carry an artist’s career a long way. And what I like so much about them is they’re public sculptures. They belong to the world.

But monumental sculptures can swallow up so much studio time that every idea or concept that is hanging around in my sketchbook has to be on hold. Now this life-size horse idea is going to get its chance. I’ve got the funding with an initial pledge from a great client and supporter. So now the ball is rolling . . . . and the fun begins.
