Equine in Motion
The biggest challenge in capturing motion in static art is encapsulating the underlying complex mechanical components. Building upon years of riding experience, and careful study of the internal equine structure, these art projects explore the body of the horse in motion. Drawing inspiration from Leonardo da Vinci’s anatomy sketches and Eadweard Muybridge’s freeze frame photography, I use metal fabrication to depict both the movement and the skeleton of the horse. These works were created by means of fine detail sawing, ferric chloride etching, and sweat soldering. These projects are the beginning in a series dedicated to the anatomy of the horse, eventually including works focusing on the other biological systems.
