The creative origin of the Horse of Knowledge began with a series of horse sketches that I started in 2004, which include many drawings of the animal’s bone and muscle structures, organs, and skin. My studies of anatomy have accumulated as knowledge and stored as memories and a source of willpower. The horse, to me, is an animal of dreams; it is both familiar and foreign to me, close yet also distant. I adore it but also have concerns for it. Since my adolescent years, the image of the animal has continued to morph in my day reveries and nighttime dreams, shifting endlessly between realms of elusion and reality. When knowledge of fantasy and logic crisscross, the image is then solidified in the real world, with precisely cut wood used to form its structure and a spatial sense created that penetrates through intangible and tangible areas, as branch-like bones lean and intertwine together. The tangible landing spot marks the present condition of the artist, standing proudly with the head held high and ready to soar.
