This print is taken from the series Study of a Standing Horse , 2018/19

Study of a Standing Horse , 2018/19 is a series of works exploring the archaic stillness and dignity of the horse.  

Simplified, silent, and precisely rendered, the works focus on the character of each horse and on its own individual form. The subjects in this series are placed parallel to the picture plane, laid out like figures in a Greek frieze with each carrying the intensity of classical sculpture. The soft undulation of relaxed and tense muscles render the work characteristic of the contrapposto poses of Greek sculpture. The works exaggerate the sculptural form of the horse, making them seem both alive and intensely archaic.
