Sculptor Doug Owen scours junkyards for the parts that become his irreverent, urban horses. The Arizona artist’s creations are in private collections and public spaces in seven countries. His unique treatments reflect centuries of fixation on the horse by hundreds of artists, including Picasso – who was captivated by prehistoric horse drawings on the walls of caves. See a great series of flip-books on Owen’s work and background, here. He’s featured in an exhibition in St. Helena, California this month at Caldwell Snyder.
