Biography Deborah Butterfield
Born in San Diego, California, on the day of the 75th running of the
Kentucky Derby, Deborah Butterfield credits this event as determining
her career as a modernist sculptor of horses.
Her work is a
combination of abstraction and reality. She uses found objects*,
related to both horses and the discards of modern society, and applies
these symbolic objects to armaments that are realistic shapes of
horses' bodies. The overall effect is of a large, strong,
loveable animal, gentle and calm, and it is obvious from the gentle
personality conveyed by the objects that she has a strong affinity and
understanding of her subjects.
Butterfield received a Master
of Fine Arts Degree from the University of California
