“Horses, as herd animals, are born to wear their feelings on the outside. I paint to capture the true responses of the horse in images of speed, freedom, alarm, work and exuberance. In the horse’s alertness and physicality I recognize our common nature and a manifestation of what in us is often hidden and complicated.” – Sophy Brown
