FROM THE ARTIST

"Those of you who are familiar with my work know that I usually paint from my imagination rather than from a specific city or place. The basis for such a starting point is that I see my paintings as a representation of an idea, rather than as an attachment to a place. The image of the city serves the idea well, both as subject matter and in terms of shape, rhythms, space and composition.

I do, however, occasionally paint a picture based upon a real place. Reality can be fertile ground for growing the imagination. If I can play fast and loose with the facts of the actual place, then my imagination is engaged." - Mark Horton
