About "Equus Round"

Edition 01 of 12.
The choice of a circular form for "Equus Round" holds deliberate significance, representing the cyclical nature of life, continuity, and the unending bond between humanity and these noble creatures. The circularity invites viewers to engage dynamically with the sculpture, encouraging a holistic appreciation from various angles.
Turquoise, revered across cultures for its associations with wisdom, protection, and spiritual connection, is employed here to evoke a sense of harmony and serenity in the viewer. It represents not only the physical manifestation of the horse but also hints at the ethereal and intangible qualities that have long captivated human imagination.
The curvature and fluidity of the sculpture's lines aim to capture the essence of movement, freezing a moment in time where the horse seems to transcend physical limitations, inviting contemplation on the boundless spirit inherent in these magnificent creatures.
Ultimately, "Equus Round" endeavours to evoke a sense of wonder, inviting viewers to journey beyond the confines of traditional representation and into a realm where symbolism, form, and colour harmonise to celebrate the enduring spirit of the horse--a timeless icon that continues to captivate and inspire across generations and cultures.

About Ruben

Ruben du Plessis

Ruben du Plessis is a sculptor and painter. Ruben's sculptures and paintings feature in corporate and private collections both nationally and abroad. Ruben was born in East London in 1973, which is situated in the Eastern Cape; an area dubbed 'The Wild Coast' due to its dramatic coastline, jagged cliffs, wild beaches, game reserves and untamed wilderness. Drawing on 'The Wild Coast' as his inspiration, Ruben's passion for art was ignited in his childhood and has never waned. Ruben studied Art and Design at the Border Technicon in East London and has been a committee member of the East London Fine Art Society for numerous years.

Notable commissions include those for Mitsui OSK Lines, P&O Nedlloyd, Border-Kei Chamber of Business and various private collectors. His ability to perform in-depth research into the subject matter of his artworks has ensured a realistic portrayal of movement and proportions. He prides himself on his meticulous attention to detail and cultural accuracies. He transforms a lifeless medium into an enviable snapshot of life and movement, immortalised to forever evoke emotions of love and deep connection to the observer. While finite in its moment, the movement seems endless.
Ruben most enjoys creating sculptures of wildlife and people. He is inspired by the works of Rodin, Bernini, Bugatti, Vermeer, Sargent, Daily, and Pfeiffer.
