Alexander shows a
horse in motion, performing a leap in three main stages, with a mountain
range in the background. The take-off, the a sense
of flying in the freedom while in mid air, and then the landing. Cut out of a single sheet of 8ft by 4 ft Baltic Birch plywood, the work is pained
with several layers of traditional high gloss oil based paint.
The size of this
sculpture is 95 inches by 36 inches.
About the name:
Alexander Nevzorov's training with horses is portrayed in his book and film,
The Horse Crucified and Risen. He, his wife Lydia, and the horses demonstrate
that force, pain and fear are not needed to establish the relationship between
human and horse. Harmony comes with the liberty to choose.
