Richard Sweeney’s Paper Horses
Art & Design
The Lincoln Cathedral is inspiring and full of history but once inside, the stunning sight of large white horses in the middle of the cathedral clearly steals the show. Created from flexible, pine skeleton covered in sheets of A1 paper, Richard Sweeney again mesmerizes us with the wielding and mastery of his this material. Known for his paper folding sculptures as duly noted by fellow blogger Adrienne Breaux there seems to be endless exploration for Sweeney. Commissioned for the Lincoln Flower Festival, “Dreams of Gold” saw tens of thousands of flowers from every corner of the world turned into horses, chariots and flames. I look forward to seeing what is next.
