The Horse Series (1995) was the subject of my first solo gallery show, "Nourishment From Below", at Ace Studios Galleries in Seattle. The form of the grazing horse, with its head to the ground and long powerful neck sweeping upward, became metaphoric of the physical and spiritual connection of living things to the earth. In 2000 I found this form repeated in asian cranes, again deriving their nourishment from the earth below.
