Horse Memory 1t
Once upon a time, there was the story of a horse through his memory like marks of time and space.
Memories are vague and often focused on a few precise details: a color, a feeling, an emotion, a gesture, a word… did these hints of the past really happen like that? It doesn’t matter, the imprint on the heart, the soul or the physique is there and forges an individual. It’s his memory that makes his story.
It’s these prints of memory that I want to show, these marks of time engraved like a tattoo in our deep flesh. They shape our identity, our history, their stories.
These horses are imbued with their past through the physical, emotional, and psychological marks they have lived and their environment… All these parts like a puzzle come together to make the horse he has become and will become tomorrow. This big and strong horse, sensitive and caring, fragile or shy, charismatic or devoted, who has jumped obstacles, played in a meadow, smelled the scent of the forest, danced in the sand or seen a scary blue plastic bag…
Their memories are their stories.
Through modern and graphic writing mixing abstraction and expression, these prints of memory worked in mixed media, shape an intimate portrait of a horse which represents the collective memory of the horses of Paardenkamp. Those who are there, those who have been there and those to come.
10% of the artwork sale will go to the retired horses center named Paardenkamp in the Netherlands where these artworks were exhibited in August 2022 with Paardverzameld collective.
