William Schaff: The Way of the Equine opens January 19, 2019.
For many years, Bill Schaaf has explored equine imagery in his paintings and sculpture. The horse figure as an iconic metaphor for power, sensuality, transition and beauty has occupied a dominant place in his visual vocabulary. At times, the figures are relatively representational; but more often than not, take on a form that is derived from the idea of a horse, yet defining new ways of interpreting the glorious nature of these animals that have partnered with humankind since virtually the dawn of civilization.
Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College in Lakeland is open Tuesday - Sunday. Admission to this Central Florida museum is always free thanks to generous sponsors.
