Deborah Butterfield: the nature of horses at the Denver Botanic Gardens
Born on the 75th anniversary of the Kentucky Derby, renowned artist Deborah Butterfield has been captivated by horses since birth. Art critics have praised her distinctive equine sculptures since she started making them in the mid-1970s.
Butterfield transforms selected pieces of scrap iron and found wood into majestic, life-size horse sculptures that are, as art historian Wayne L. Roosa has written, “like ancient, noble archaeological remains, skeletal and grand.”
