    “Milagro” is so named because her birth seemed like a miracle.  Born on our ranch this last July, every one was certain her mother was not pregnant up until an hour before she was born.  I was able to watch the whole birthing, and was reminded what a miracle birth is indeed.  As I’ve watched her grow, and her character develop, she shows much lively personality….curious, brave, delighted with the world.  She has learned to make clear her desires, which is most consistently Mom’s milk, and racing around to stretch those long, gangling legs.  Ranking high on her favorites’ list is getting her rump scratched,   preferring that any nearby human do.  Which points to the name of the sculpture, Milagro's "Sweet Spot" When no one is around to accommodate her, she does her best to take on the job!

    The Love between the Mare and her Colt is essential to the colt’s well being.
    It is imperative that the colt runs along side of his mother learning to run and coordinate along with the subtle twists and turns of a gentle gallop.

    This creates an unbreakable bond in which a colt is matured to the eventual status of an independent stallion.

    In this series I've tried to focus on individual personalities that I believe can be glimpsed best in moments of relaxed repose. Most often humans today experience wildlife at a distance and on the move. Animals, whether domesticated or wild, have a character as individual as humans, and sometimes reflect this character in their facial or body expressions. The capturing of a tell tale gesture or glance is what I find rewarding in these works.

    An enduring appeal of horse imagery is that it can embody both powerful male and female symbolism. The horses depicted on the ceremonial caves of Paleolithic man suggest fertility and abundance, whereas the horse in Renaissance art, once equines were developed into tools for battle, became strongly male.

    Once I began to consciously consider the horse as I have rendered it in my own work, I realized that I have mostly focused on the female side . . . (unsurprising given my personal interest in breeding.) So I decided to go back to a master few humans have surpassed in brilliance over the millennium, and study what he had to say on the subject. In rendering that subject in the style and with the essence I glean from his drawings, I feel I can (like with the Rock Art drawings), better understand his perspective through the act of recreating his images.

    Leonardo Da Vinci admired the horse’s ability to truly become an extension of man. He has drawn many comparisons of human and equine facial expressions that reflect this. His equine sketches are an amazing blend of the male/female power: rounded voluptuous shapes infused with bulging muscles and fierce expression. His horses training for war have the passion and intensity of any human warrior he portrayed.

    Da Vinci recognized the value of such a creature to the man of his culture . . . power driven, war oriented. And the horse appealed to the further enlargement of oneself with their regal, noble demeanor and presence.

    The very first foal born on our ranch grew up to have her own foal, and their interaction is what inspired this sculpture.  She was a particularly affectionate mother, and the tenderness she expressed in this moment was what I wished to capture in bronze.

    “Congress finds and declares that wild free roaming horses and burros are living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West; that they contribute to the diversity of the life forms within the Nation, and enrich the lives of American people…”
    Public Law 92-195 12/15/71

    With Flowing tail and flying mane,
    wide nostrils never
    stretched by pain,
    mouth bloodless to bit or rein,
    And feet that iron never shod
    and flanks unscarred by
    spur or rod
    A thousand horses-the wild
    the free-
    Like waves that follow o’er
    the sea
    Come quickly thundering on

    "Eclipse"

    In this sculpture, the stallion is executing the most extreme movement we ask of horses....the "capriole."
    It is taught by the centuries old Spanish Riding School after many years of careful training and building up
    the horse's muscle to be physically capable of it. It is the pinnacle of accomplishment, the zenith achievement,
    eclipsing all else.

    The patina is silver nitrate.... suspended silver particles applied with torch heat, to create the silvery shimmering
    effect of the dapples.

    Most of us are familiar with the Chinese Terra cotta

    warrior horses from the Tang Dynasty period.

    Instead, I choose for inspiration the equines found in

    the Qing Dynasty paintings, since the style of horse

    depicted was so sculptural; rounded shapes drawn with

    multicolored horses of unusual and striking color and

    pattern, possibly because they owned by nobility who

    wished to be seen  on eye catching steeds; the mounts

    of Lords & Emperors.

  • One of the underrated pleasures of sculpture is that when it comes to making decisions about how to display a piece, this automatically engages the collector in a creative collaboration with the artist. Brood Band of the 6666 Ranch incorporates this concept by presenting a group of mares and foals that are not affixed to the base, allowing the collector to be the narrator of the overall piece by the way he arranges the horses and puts them into different relationships with each other. The idea underlying this presentation came from watching the constantly changing configuration of the brood band in my own pastures.

    The inspiration for this sculpture comes out of a fundraising event we hosted at our ranch for a therapeutic riding program. We brought in a variety of equine models; from cowboys & Indians to Burros & vaqueros’ for artists to paint, draw, sculpt and photograph. One of the models was a nude seated bareback on one of my mares. For 5 hours the mare stood patiently as the nude model assumed various poses for the working artists. Moonlit is my expression of the unique experience.

    In rock graphics depicted by Stone Age Man we find a legacy, which belongs to all mankind. They are found virtually on every continent. Some experts believe the animal imagery was done as a way of establishing a supernatural connection with the game early man hunted for his survival.

    There is a timeless quality to much rock art that comes, in part, from the aesthetic sensibilities that created it. Many of the designs have a sophisticated sense of style and subtlety. Even with their archaic means and simplicity they often have a look that is modern yet primitive . . . and seems to emit an echo that resounds in our subconscious.

    The caves of Lascaux, Font-du Gaume and Altamira comprises some of the oldest and most beautiful sketched imagery in human history. European authorities at first refused to believe that "primitive hands" could have rendered such artistry. What impresses me most is the reverence for the animals that comes through these renderings. These Rock Art sculptures are a tribute to those hands in three-dimension.

    One of the main characters found in Paleolithic "picture caves" are wooly ponies - grouped in ways that seem to have a special mystical function, and rendered with a fluency and grace of line that make them as alive as their counterparts in the light-world.

    The creation of fetishes, effigies, and talismans goes back to the earliest evidence of mankind. The compulsion to make aesthetic objects displays the creative spark that distinguished Homo sapiens form Neanderthals; it is a unique providence of the human mind. First expressed in stone carvings and cave wall paintings from the Paleolithic Period, it has continued throughout the centuries and across all cultures. When mankind is in tune with the natural environment, he is acutely aware of the strengths inherent in other species in order to learn useful survival skills . . . such as the bear for finding healing herbs, the coyote for clever prowess, the deer for evasive tactics. By creating their likeness, the recreation becomes the physical embodiment for the particular characteristic the animal symbolizes for the maker. And, as every creature has it’s unique qualities, so have other elements such as stone, feather and bone, which when added to the fetish increases it’s significance. The object then has become the recipient vessel of the energy given it, spiritual liaison for the bearer, containing the energy. This magic spark can then be called upon when needed, whether it be courage, fortitude, clarity in vision or healing powers. As an extension of this most primal understanding that goes back to the very roots of our being, I feel that all objects of art contain an energy endowed by it’s maker. It is this very mystery I wished to explore in this body of work, and encourage viewers to contemplate. It is partly influenced by those contemporary artists who have reminded me of these mysterious corners of my mind, but mostly by the ancients whose brilliance fascinates and inspires me above all, and on whose shoulders we all stand.

    Most of the animal forms painted on cave walls during the Ice Age are believed to be iconographic, with mythological implications.  Once in a while, however, an image will appear that is so powerful it would seem to represent a force of nature, and at the same time is rendered with such personality that it might also be the portrait of an individual.

        I have always had a particular interest in the power of ancient artifacts and what the mysteries are that they show us of our ancestors, and so have been drawn to recreating them in my sculpture.  I find that doing these bring me a deeper understanding of what is they can tell us.

       Since the very origins of human consciousness, there is evidence that humans understood future, and sought to influence it to improve their survival.  Using animal helping spirits to carry prayers and messages to the highest power is a practice found in every culture throughout the world and throughout time.

       With this body of work, I wanted to expand on the series I began years ago of sculpturally recreating ancient drawings, paintings and petroglyphs.  These works include artifact influences from cultures worldwide and from different periods of time, because they show how pervasive and consistent this practice was from all corners of the globe. 

    These animals taken from a variety of historical artifacts, are sculpted to reference their origin, but to have them to appear to be coming alive, animated from the dormant stance they have been in for centuries….answering a kind of summoning.  Hearing the call from the shaman, they are beginning to move.
