Heckel’s Horse is the alias used by local artist Edgeworth Johnstone for a series of works based on collaborative paintings he has made over the last ten years with Medway artist Billy Childish, 18 years his senior. Hence, Johnstone acting alone is Heckel’s Horse Jr.  These beguiling works have their roots in primitive and symbolist art using colour and the language of dreams to great effect.
