Our sculpture 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, highly recognisable across all cultural divides by young and old. Few animals have formed such a fundamental partnership with humans as has 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.
