“A lot of my work is inspired by horses as I have been around horses since I am about 10 years old. When I sculpt, I start to sculpt in clay or plastecine. I then make a first silicone mould of the work and cast a plaster version, which I then rework completely. This is the final version that is then moulded again by the foundry and cast. The piece looked so impressive in plaster that it was a natural choice to make it in Marble resin, a combination of modern materials and classic material for a contemporary sculpture with a classical feel.” – Marie Ackers
It portrays the intricate relationship between man and horse and the elegant shapes, pure lines and attitudes of the horses.
