My Little Clydesdale

I was commissioned by Hamilton Bid for the Ready Steady Gallop event associated with Wild in Art to create a design and paint it onto a lifesize Clydesdale horse sculpture. I was inspired by childhood toys and public perceptions associated with 'taste and tack'. As these sculptures were to be displayed in public locations around the community, I felt that a bright, colourful and bold design would be most effective in capturing an audience. As the design resonates a throwback to childhood, I hoped that this design would not only incorporate a family aspect of the community, but also promote a feeling of nostalgia within some viewers.
