The Horse Marionette
My passion for creating technically complex art work has its roots in my schooling at Pro Arte High school for the Arts. Here I made marionettes that were highly detailed using innovative construction and manipulation methods. My recent work has drawn me once again into a direction where the technical and artistic meet. The Horse marionette is homage to my earlier days of puppet making. The image of the horse itself was inspired by a drawing that I made during this time. The Horse Marionette has fully functional joints and movable wings. All the horse’s parts have been placed in the same digital file so no assembly is required afterwards. When strung up the horse comes to life.
