Horses have engrossed Butterfield’s artistic labors for over three decades. Executed without the aid of sketches or models, her meticulous, life-sized sculptures lay bare the deep connection she feels with her chosen subject. The rough, organic materials used to create this piece underscore a concurrent aura of forcefulness and serenity, qualities that fortify her conception of it as a symbolic self-portrait.
