When poet Moyra Donaldson viewed the work of artist Paddy Lennon, she was immediately inspired. Her response to his work encouraged her to produce a creative collaboration. The fact that horses played an integral part in both artists' lives is evident in their work. Poet and painter have together created 'Blood Horses' (Lagan Press), a creative and moving dialogue between poem and painting. Through their words and images, these two artists tell the stories of three famous stallions - The Byerly Turk, The Darley Arabian, and the Godolphin Barb - founding fathers of the thoroughbred horse as we know it today. 'Blood Horses', both exhibition and beautiful limited-edition book, looks at the relationship between humans and horses, the effect they have on our lives, and our love for these magnificent creatures.
