Racing Horses, 2005
Bronze, 86 x 147 x 35 centimetres each
Racing Horses features four bronze horses sculpted by Derrick Stephen Hudson. The angle of the horses' heads and the three-dimensional power of the sculpture reflect the movement and emotion of a horse race. Although the horses are suspended in time, they appear to be racing forward with power and beauty. Hudson is now focusing on wild animals for his sculptures: "I find the animal form dynamic, diversified and tragically disappearing. I try to capture their energy and dynamism."
