Goodman’s Two Horses Running Together - 2014
“At Goodman’s Fields we had the opportunity to create a landmark that celebrates British craftsmanship as well as the history of the local community.” (Berkeley Homes)
Hamish was commissioned by Berkeley Homes to create six life-and-a-quarter size bronze horses for the main Piazza at Goodman’s Fields, London - for which he was awarded the annual Marsh Awards for Excellence in Public Sculpture and Public Fountains in 2016 by the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association. Each remarkable bronze horse sculpture is available individually as a limited edition of 6.
A thoroughbred and a shire-cross run side-by-side in this larger-than-lifesize horse sculpture. Cast in bronze, Goodman’s Horses Running Together resonates with energy and vitality.
Exact scale replicas of all the Goodman’s Fields Horses by Hamish Mackie are available in limited editions.
THIS SCULPTURE IN THE MAKING
The Goodman’s 2 Horses Running Together were based on a Thoroughbred from Paul Webber Racing and a Thoroughbred/Shire from David Tatlow. In this sculpture, I wanted to translate young spirited horses running loose and free through London, the Thoroughbred/Shire bucking and the Thoroughbred in more of a racing stance. I sculpted both horses in my studio using the photographs, video and measurements I had taken in my research.
