Welcome to the second wave of Sea Horse prints from Simon Palmer.

The Sea Horses project continues to develop and change.

This is the second wave of images from an entirely new shoot in 2014 at the Cumbrian Heavy Horse Centre.

Wave 2 - Sea Horse 1
Wave 2 - Sea Horse 1
Sea Horse 1 - Industrial love

Simon’s thoughts:

“This is a ‘Words Worth’ print. A combination of art and image, this piece of art reminds me of the fact that the heavy horses were the power before the industrial revolution. They drove production of the food we consumed, and move the barges with coal and other goods. Now, they are the focus of our love for all that is beautiful, graceful, and humble in the horse world. The giants that are so delicate! This piece is a combination of an industrial sheet metal background wash with the image overlaid on top. One of my favourites...”

The print contains the words “I am industrial heritage, and the present of your love” below the image.

This image does not go to the edges of the paper, using a clean white border to accentuate the artwork and will be signed (by hand) in the bottom right.

Sea Horse 2 - Racing with friends

“Three beautiful ‘heavies’ belting through the beach surf. It’s the first of a series within the second wave called “Racing with Friends”, and it shows the vitality, energy, and poser of these lovely horses.”

The print contains the words “Racing with friends” below the image.

Sea Horse 3 - Racing with friends II

Simon’s thoughts:

“The second in the “Racing with friends” series with the Cumbrian beach scenery in the background. Who needs a rider to get the horses to throw magnificent shapes as they belt along the beach?”

The print contains the words “Racing with friends II” below the image.

Simon’s thoughts:

“This is a more traditional image. I felt that it was very relaxing to look at and shouldn’t be anything but itself.”

Sea Horse 5 - Incoming!

Simon’s thoughts:

“One of my Art House prints, a recessed border print, showing the horse in full motion coming towards the camera. I think I might have got quite wet with this shot as he passed me in the water!”

Sea Horse 6 - Thundering Hooves

Simon’s thoughts:

“When I created this piece of art, I got chills! It’s one of those images that when it becomes what it is the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. I’m a great fan of black and white, but this one really stood out with the for boding dark colours. I literally sat there looking at it for ages, when the words stumbled into my head. It had to be a Words Worth print because of the power of whats in the image. The thunderous sky coupled with the power of the horses I think in all my images from the project so far captures the sense of Sea Horses.”


The print contains the words “The sound of rain becomes the sound of waves. The sound of thunder becomes the sound of hooves...” below the image.

Sea Horse 10 - Racing with friends V

Simon’s thoughts:

“The final instalment of the Racing set. This was just before the horses left the beach (inside joke). I recall being in the middle of them as they past and I felt very small, and possibly very flat if Sparky hadn’t decided to go right and I went left!”

The print contains the words “Racing with friends V” below the image.
