Tony Horton

AWAKENING

2018
oil and dye on canvas
96 x 72 x 2 inches

The large canvases by Tony Horton immerse the viewer in color and light achieved through thin layers of paint. In Awakening, rich earth tones erupt from the center of the painting, radiating out as waves of peach, crimson, and burgundy. The washes of color allow the canvas to peek through, and suggest an inner light coming from within the core of the piece. The subtle pools of color on the stained canvas recall Color Field artists Helen Frankenthaler and Morris Louis. Based in Dallas, Horton is well-known for his paintings, custom furniture, wall installations, and sculpture.

estimated retail value: $63,000
