February 4, 2012. The noses have all be shorn from these majestic, rounded beasts, standing at attention. To what center do they point, what imaginary stand-off do they represent, or what mythical coming together do they foretell? Looking at them, it is so easy to see why they have always captivated our imaginations. The sheer force behind their frames, the thick neck and powerful hindquarters. Imagine the thrill of the first person to ever ride on the back of one of these steeds - and to stay there.
As I travel around the City I am always aware of the art around me, in all of its forms. I enjoy watching the lamp posts as I pass by, the sides of buildings, the sidewalks, the sky, almost anywhere. Sometimes I spot artists I know from Union Square, Soho and elsewhere in the City.
