2015 Winner | Harrie Fasher, 'The Bird and I'
The Bird and I is a self-portrait. The horse is a reoccurring motif in my work; utilised to depict grace and strength alongside fragility and tension. Having spent a lifetime alongside the animal I often feel like I am “part’ horse. I speak their language. This sculpture represents where
I find my inspiration – outside walking in the landscape; unwittingly the self-portrait was born!
