Changing Direction of a Galloping horse, is a limited edition bronze sculpture by Jane Shaw.
We all need to change direction in life and this bronze equestrian sculpture of a charging horse is trying to do just that. The horse sculpture has strong dynamic presence, and is great in a sitting room, on a coffee table where you can see it from every angle.
Personally I am a great believer in changing direction – I call it a ‘right turn’ in life….and it often doesnt matter what turn it is, but the important thing is your making that turn and we are so often in dreaded fear of change….and to be honest, I love it! I hope this sculpture shows that – afterall it generally is always exciting! However, you definitely do not want to be on a horse, when they decide to change direction! I am still recovering from my last fall when the horse did just that!
After completing a degree in History of Art at Manchester University, Jane spent her early career with a firm of Fine Art Valuers and Consultants travelling and living abroad before returning to London to set up and run a recruitment company, which she then sold after a decade. On moving to Dorset in 2013, she has revived her love for sculpture inspired by her life long interest in animals, and the outdoors. Jane is passionate about the portrayal of both animals and humans, and often working directly from life, focusing on movement and the overall essence of her subject. Jane continues on her own sculpture projects, producing work in both bronze and bronze resin and is now beginning to develop larger scale projects in plaster which are cast for the outdoors. In 2015 she was awarded First Prize for her sculpture of a Racing Greyhound at the Bath & West Show and then won the same award in 2016 for her sculpture of a Hare’s Head – ‘All Ears’.
