'My work aims to highlight the enduring but complex relationship between horses and humans. In these paintings, the spectral representation of the horse presents a species with a long and interconnected relationship with humans, sometimes to the point of holy divinity. The horse's long service to humanity, and their deep awareness and understanding of a species other than themselves, is one we humans can only aspire to and yet…

 

Humans have, since the beginning, subjected billions of horses to untold horrors and murderous exploitation. The ghostlike form of various horses in the work is both a testament to those that have suffered and died as well as our sanctification of them and our admiration of their deep powers of intuition and knowledge that transcends far beyond the cognitive abilities of our own species.'
