Artist Comments:

In Peru over the last year I have observed with love and fascination the extremes of life. Bullfighting ritualizes the horse’s role in human history. I gave the blinkered but well-padded horse a matador’s gold and magenta cape to symbolize the horse being placed into the path of battle.
