Oil on canvas, 2007
"The soul is the same in all living creatures, although the body of each is different." My interpretation of this quote by Hippocrates resulted in the creation of Body, Soul & Mind a series where I've given as much emphasis to the human figure as I have to the animal form. These three works combined are a whole idea whilst existing as individual works in themselves. The merging of the human figure with an animal reflection represents the physical manifestation of a series of observations that have intrigued me for some time.
Soul - Horses are the personification of a wild and free spirit and the color blue, for me, is the epitome of that quality, resulting in an all-blue painting. Following the concept behind Hippocrates's quote I chose to depict the body of a horse mirrored onto a male torso.
