Description of the artwork
When I first saw that a sculpture could be made of driftwood, I immediately felt that I could create a living image. I had no doubt.
The choice immediately fell on the sculpture of horses. I consider horses to be one of the most harmonious animals. Conveying their image, grace and inner world is a subtle task for a creative man. I decided that it would be a challenge for me.
It took me 3 month to collect natural material. When I found some wooden snags, I immediately imagined that they would turn into a part of a leg, a snout, a tail or a croup of a horse. Each snag (there are 245 pieces) is a piece of puzzle which is folded into a unique single image. It took me four month to put it together.
When I look at the sculpture, I see how simple and complex forms of snags, which nature has created, turn into one elegant figure. Creating art by preserving the environment and taking inspiration from nature is my concept.
