Artist: Larassa Kabel - “I’m a horse girl from way back and have a lot of powerful associations with them, but they are also really iconic animals. They’re speed, beauty and power, but they are also incredibly fragile. A broken leg or a twisted gut and they’re done. You can’t do anything for them except put them down.
“As for why they’re falling, all I can say is that the image of a falling horse came to me in a flash of insight. I don’t get that a lot as an artist, but this was powerful. And I knew that they needed to be life-size so that the viewer could really feel the impending impact and the emotion of that loss of control. I think of it as poetic disaster, and even though they are horses, I think they translate to mean a generalized feeling of helplessness and panic.”
