Tony Horton


oil on canvas

Tony Horton’s paintings often revel in the inherent properties of the medium – transparency, viscosity, and tonality – and abstract compositions of pure beauty are the result. In Winter’s Veil, thin washes of paint flow down the canvas. The restrained color palette and austere composition give the work a quiet, meditative quality. The simple effect of drips and lines of lighter hues merging into darker hues evokes a number of natural phenomena, and the title suggests the utterly silent moment that occurs after a snowstorm.
