Blind is one of a series of works that uses the figure of a horse to explore themes of the human condition. As a subject, the horse is iconic and highly recognisable across all cultural divides by young and old. Few animals have formed such a fundamental partnership with humans as the horse. We have relied upon each other... we have history together.
This new work, Blind, has a reference point with the shale and coal mining activity that occurred at the Scenic World site during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Steel, lead and salvaged objects.
