Black Velvet Stallion, 2015


By Nathan Pohio

Editions for sale are limited to 20.

For Ngāi Tahu the word for horse is hoiho. Nathan has been working with hoiho imagery since 2004, placing himself between the Māori value of hoiho and the ground-breaking studies of 19th-century photographer
Eadweard Muybridge’s Animal Locomotion - images of animals and humans in motion.

Nathan has taken found material and reworked it to suggest movement, engagement and mana. Present and engaged with the viewer, the way this horse is composed is reminiscent of the knight piece from a chess set, a favoured pastime of Marcel Duchamp.

This piece is a limited-edition photograph created exclusively for SCAPE Public Art. It presents the opportunity to purchase a new work by one of Christchurch’s most respected artists whose works are held in private collections and those of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia.

Dimensions: 300mm x 1161mm
