Blue Moon Hunter, oil on canvas, 30x30

Todd Horton

Todd Horton lives and paints full time on Samish Island, Washington. His work involves landscape and wildlife with elements of chance that play between realism and abstraction. His paintings have been largely influenced from time living abroad in Berlin and Japan. Horton’s process of creating/destroying merge to create a magical poetical realism that is once enigmatic and literal, opening the possibility of symbolic meanings. Yet the paintings are most importantly inviting and “beautiful”, making us more sensitive to the world around us.
