Having both a sense of gravity and lightness, her horses and riders came out of her canvases into a real and believable space. I imagined this place was a Horse Land where the horses are huge and strong, like the earth, and the people are small, secure and happy, like children. The people show their affection of these earthy horses with their acrobatic dances. The contrast of the stability within in the clay form with the lighthearted movements feels nice. It is like a carefree childhood that develops upon the stability of a mother’s consistent love.
