When I was little I gave my plastic horses true personality. Through all the stories I was doing with them, they kept their own character. Each of my horses had a name, a story. I transposed to my world-views through these small figurines. It was no loger figurines in my eyes, but true characters.
The moreI played, the more I let my imagination overflow, the more they lose their fixed and inert position.
Without being really aware, my fascination for the horse remained intact. I focus o the horse, this fascination that drove my interest in anatomy. Drawing hundred of horses, to try new positions, I unconsciously filled my frustration of my motionless toy.
I gave them in my drawings force and dynamics. The movement has become on of my most discussed topics in my project.
It follows from my memories when I was playing with my toys.
