Because prints are very fragile, they shouldn't be stored in the tube for extended periods of time. Make sure to open the package within 24-48 hrs of receiving it and take it to a professional framer as soon as possible for opening and archival dry mounting. Handling your large print yourself could result in wrinkles or tears. In the unlikely event of damage, please see policy HERE.
FRAMING: It is not uncommon for prints to have a strong curl to them when first unrolled. Discuss with your professional framer about dry-mounting your print, using archival materials only, to ensure it will remain flat once framed.
PLACEMENT: All artworks should not be placed in direct sunlight to avoid any fading over time.
ABOUT THE PIECE
UTAH STALLIONS, 2020
Seeing these two together after all these years was amazing.
“Bucky” was never a stallion I considered warm and fuzzy, his band was always intense with multiple satellite stallions to keep everyone together. They moved a lot, always on the go, moving mares and foals just when they would settle for rest. If I was looking for action at any given time, honing my gaze in on this band generally delivered. I recall moments with other bands at a watering hole, just the sight of his band coming in would move them off swiftly and without question.
In fall of 2017 is when I noticed Bucky slightly injured, nothing tragic, but enough for his band to start breaking apart. He only had two of the Three Graces and those two wanted to know where the third was badly. So he was working solo to keep them far away from the group. Always hard to witness, and such a shock after seeing the drive of this group for so long. The day I saw the steel grey stallion chase him away from one of his own mares was slightly crushing.
I understand this happens, however, it was my first up close and personal experience with it. Frankly, I was not fond of the steel grey guy so there is that.
When I first arrived in the area, Bucky was making his way towards “Old Man” with a clip of a walk and that direct look in his eye. My anthropomorphic heart was of course thinking “NO!” When they made contact it actually was a bit of a stallion exchange and Old Man was holding his own, now I’m waving my pom poms for him. Fizzling out after a few strikes, kicks and a feeble attempt at rearing, which is how I discovered Bucky was on the mend but still struggling with his back end. It ended with this…I saw and felt so much in this moment.
The horse is a social creature, it is not meant to be alone. It is ingrained in their DNA to move across territory, seek each other out for safety and comfort, and to thrive and survive no matter the circumstances. These are Living Legends of the desert.
