When the artist was a child, he would take a long a walk from the dairy barn to the cow pasture and journey into the cedar forest. His adventures took him to meet packs of coyotes and tall horses.
Curiosity and wonderment inspired him to follow these ginormous horses. He would watch them graze and eat from the Horse Apple trees.
The restorative transformation of materials into sculptures that honor the past life of once forgotten objects that furthers the very philosophy and purpose of sustainability and repurposing that has driven the artist’s work. His intention is to trigger the viewers and users curiosity, “Where did this come from? What was its former use?” #horseapple #artaroundrowsell
