Dartmoor ponies feature in New York photographer's unique exhibition
A unique, photographic celebration of Dartmoor's wild ponies is under way in London.
Devon-born artist Patricia Heal, who now lives in New York, has returned to her roots, with an exhibition inspired by her passion for the threatened ponies and the misty, granite flecked moorlands of her childhood.
Two large collages of individual works on canvas, stitched together with horse hair – Dartmoor MMXII and Dartmoor MMXIII – sit alongside three large photographs printed on gold metallic dibond – a lightweight aluminium.
Completing the tableau is a video installation and 4ft golden cube sculpture.

Patricia, already an internationally renowned photographer, is showing her work in her native UK for the first time, at the Stone Theatre, Waterloo, until November 14.
She has revealed how she has altered the canvas with inks, stains and charcoal to give the work a worn, slightly distressed, texture.
At least 5% of the proceeds from the sale of her works will be donated to the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust, the Devon-based charity dedicated to preserving the animals, which are in decline.
Titled Dartmoor – An installation of photographic works on canvas, video and sculpture, the collection "marks a shift from previous work" and embodies her life-long relationship with the National Park and its native, wild ponies.
