“Stampede encompassed in universal terms the death he had so vividly confronted in the war, completing the cycle of which Range Burial is presumably the second half. Both works are held in balance. Range Burial is the contemplation of death in life, Stampede a recognition of life in death. Instead of silently linked figures around a central void, it presents a solid mass of living forms in which the death of the fallen cowboy is only one incident, a unique stroke in the overall rhythm. His body is dragged into the apocalyptic torrent of life, the “ceaseless river of moments” – he dies into life. At the moment of death the furious movement is at its most intense, and “time falls away aimlessly and meaninglessly.” This quote from the “Harry Jackson” book captures the stampede sculpture beautifully.
The Coe commission for the “Range Burial” and “Stampede” paintings were the birth of Harry Jackson’s sculpting. Here are some images of the very first full size model for the stampede sculpture and painting.
