Horse Power

I am very fond of cooling towers. For me they are emblematic of the post-industrial landscape. The lovely old horse against that backdrop seems to suggest a sort of epitaph to the fossil-fuel era.

Artist inspiration...

We asked Dave what his inspiration was behind the art, here's what he had to say;

I encountered this scene as an unexpected bonus collecting a coffee table from an obscure warehouse on the A1. I am very fond of cooling towers. For me they are emblematic of the post-industrial landscape.  The lovely old horse against that backdrop seems to suggest a sort of epitaph to the fossil-fuel era.
