Mapping Horses...continued

"Maps of Horses 1976" Dry-point (detail)

Without going into any great detail this latest series of etchings simply allows me to bring together two forms that I have always felt a certain connection with...horses and maps. The underpinning connection is that maps provide a method in navigating our location at a particular moment in time...a way of positioning our experience within the here and now...regardless of whether it is Google earth or a hand drawn 'mud map'...the experience is identical...the horse is more of a personal connection to the past...a continuance of metaphor.
