Club Mullum Art Space October 2016

Training horses for close combat.
The Waler was the chosen mount for Australian Light Horsemen. This exhibition, Carousel to Warhorse, presents a small tribute to the Waler and the part it played in Australian war time history.

Carousel to Warhorse Opening Sat 2nd May 2015

Carousel to Warhorse

The term carousel is from the 11th century. The equine qualities of poise, balance and strength led Turkish and Arabian horsemen to train them for military use.

The term was coined by the Crusaders from the Spanish carosella or ?little war?. We now know it as dressage, the equestrian ballet where natural movement is the foundation of training and tact and empathy are used rather than force?. ...

Each Artist explores themes of prestige and wealth symbolised by the Spanish Silver Dollar, formerly a dominant currency in the development of trade worldwide. Ideas of power, wealth and prestige are inspired by its influence on Australian and Chinese cultures. Louise references the Holey Dollar and connections to ancient Jade Bi discs of Central Asia, while Ruth presents exquisite Jade like vessels on pedestals reminiscent of the horse shoe arches of Cordoba, Spain. In China, eight horses is considered economically auspicious. Sue continues an Asian theme with ideas of human horse connections by presenting two series of eight equine ceramic sculptures and low relief wall works. Continued...
