There are many animals caught up in the unicorn legend, which have been commingled over time to produce various descriptions of the mysterious beast.
These vague and ambiguous descriptions have been worked upon by the imaginations of artists and writers over time, and so I am adding mine. The story of the unicorn has been intertwined with those of real animals, most just as strange and fascinating themselves, and reveal just as much about us and our engagement with the natural word, as they do about the unicorn itself.
These paintings are all based on horses and ponies indigenous to the UK and Eire, and set in the landscape of their native land (in this case Dartmoor); making the most ordinary equines of our country extraordinary – or perhaps making the extraordinary unicorn ordinary?
