Photographs of Paul Horton / Studio by Samantha Knight Photography


Love & Hope is the charming new limited edition collection of art by Paul Horton. Having toured the country for over ten years with Washington Green Fine Art, Paul Horton is one of the most popular contemporary artists in the UK today. Horton’s work has built a loyal audience, one that seems to reinvest in both the art and the artist with each new collection. Horton’s portfolio has drawn comparisons to the subject matter of Lowry, the methods and materials of Degas, and the myth that allows Chagall to so vividly explode. But his work is identifiable, in both presentation and subject; there are clear and constant truths that belong only to Horton and his audience. And that’s the beauty of Paul Horton’s world; despite being intrinsically personal it can be your world too, whatever you conceive that to be. This collection of limited edition art by Paul Horton, is the accompanying collection to Love & Hope, a prestigious museum exhibition, showcasing over 80 original pastels, charcoals and oils - opening at the Waterhall, Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery in October 2013.


If the subtle vibrancy of colour isn’t the first aspect of Paul Horton’s pastels that makes an impact on the viewer, then the endless sense of optimism might well do it. These characters are typical Horton types, solitary and from a bygone age, romantic in their way. But it is when the pastels flash with that subtle vibrancy that the Horton canon blasts into orbit: Captain Of My Heart is a masterpiece of romantic beauty: the wee figures tiny in the frame, but instantly recognised as the focal point of the work. And isn’t that fellow optimistic! As, too, is the Vincent doppelganger.What else could he be? I have several of Paul’s pastels hanging in my home, and there are several here that I would love to own. Because this collection shows Paul at his best: always entertaining, endlessly enchanting and original. Steve Harley, Singer/Songwriter
