Mark Horton – “City with Market”

City with Market, an oil painting on linen by Mark Horton contains both realistic and abstracted elements.  This urban landscape feels familiar, yet it depicts a place that does not really exist.  Horton’s compositions are made up of components from many cities that are positioned on the canvas in such a way that the viewer is drawn in.   Intrigued by architectural elements, random passersby, and ubiquitous details such as street lights and fire hydrants, Horton uses color and texture to suggest a lively interaction between people and place.  Mark Horton‘s urban landscapes will be on exhibit from September 10 to October 14.  Please visit Mark Horton’s page on the Tory Folliard Gallery website to see more of his work.
