Alysa Bennett

Alysa Bennett during her exhibition at Cerulean Arts

Over the course of my career as an artist, I have sought to examine subjects that I find moving and mysterious. Horses have continuously been one of my prime subject matters and they have formed the core of my ideas and inspiration. Being raised on a cattle ranch and then having one myself, in southern Arizona, I developed a love of painting and drawing not only all the horses but the many other animals as well, and, of course, the amazing landscape of the high desert. I started sculpting horses years ago, first with straw, then moved to using multiple kinds of feathers and now ancient pottery shards and old family letters. I try, with all the various mediums, to depict their very evocative gestures. It is intriguing to watch as they play, fight, rest and work, all those gestures mirroring our own in a kind of universal language. It is that power that I strive to depict in my work, hoping to articulate that even in a slight turn of a horse’s head there is something compelling and full of possible narrative.
