SUSAN LEYLAND AND PATSY MCARTHUR EXHIBITION 2017
Through drawing, Scottish artist, Patsy McArthur explores the grace and freedom of movement. “I’m trying to make really contemporary, emotional drawings which have as much to do with us as humans as they do with horses. The imagery of leaping joyously, straining to clear an invisible fence, spooking or swerving all seem to translate into our human experience so well and by keeping the images clean and free of background context, hopefully focus one on the motion and more importantly the emotion. There’s definitely memory there of how the horse is.”
