Steel Horse Sculpture by Nina Scott Hansen
16”L x 11 1/2"”H x 4 1/2”W
We have a thing for the Equus Caballus at ByCloudia and this standing horse sculpture by Nina Scott Hansen does not disappoint. It's a fluid piece despite it's brutalist aspect. The life-like stance and gaze of the sculpture is mesmerizing. A three dimensional sculpture. Original art. Torch cut welded steel. Corroded patina. In beautiful condition.
Nina Scott-Hansen moved to the United States from Denmark with her family when she was 10 years old. She studied art at institutions in Norway and the United States and worked in advertising before embarking on a full-time career in art. She has shown at many galleries, including Drawing Room Gallery in St. George, Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland, Filament Gallery in Portland, Harbor Square Gallery in Rockland, and Lanning Gallery in Sedona, Arizona. Scott-Hansen’s work has also been shown in Norway, at Smestad Gallery and Kjell Olsen Kunst Gallery.
Scott-Hansen’s late boyfriend, an ironworker, taught her to weld in the 1980s. She met him while she was working in advertising in Camden. “I fell for it right away,” she says, citing the visceral qualities of the material and the work as particularly engaging. “I like the heat, the way it smells, and the way it feels.” Scott-Hansen has sculpted horses, trolls, and myriad creatures.
