“In Memory of the Work Horse” by Anna Hyatt Huntington at Brookgreen Gardens, South Carolina.
A farmer wearing a coat and a cap pulled down tightly, walking on an incline beside a large bridled horse, is braced against a stiff wind. The man hangs onto a plow harness around the horse’s neck while his coat is blown up and over its back. The animal’s head is down, as man and horse both lean into the wind.
Known for his figurative sculptures that use Dutch wax cloth (popular throughout Africa) to explore cultural identity, Yinka Shonibare here, at the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, transforms a wisp of the same fabric into a playfully monumental sculpture that captures the wind like a giant sail.
