“We need animals. Animals don’t need us, but we need them. We constantly look for any kind of connection we can possibly get to them”.
Britta Jaschinski, photographer.
My own creative inspiration is the horse, and this exhibition of paintings is based mainly on the equine groupings that I observe near my home in rural Scotland. I try not to project my own needs and emotions on the animals I love. I want instead to focus on the intimate and private communication between horses that exists quite independently of the human world I am fascinated by this communication, and these paintings show some of that language of hierarchy and devotion that I observe on my daily walks.
