RED SKY AT NIGHT
mixed media on canvas
72 x 72 x 2 inches
A deep awareness of process, color, and light come together in this lush work by Tony Horton. Lacey veils of paint layer up to create a light-infused work that appears to simultaneously radiate and reflect light. The title evokes the phenomenon that occurs as the sky changes in the evening, with the light from the distant horizon producing an odd, uncanny beauty. Restrained touches of color, and a surface informed by the natural properties of paint, result in a work rich in sensual and natural associations.
