The artist forms her horse sculpture according to her intuition, creating works each of which are unique with its own personality. The artwork displayed here is named after her own horse "Captain". Butterfield seeks to convey the dynamic energy and the quiet grace of the horse in solid form, and hopes to inspire contemplation within our urban environment about horses' curiosity, empathy and understanding qualities that are also very human.
