"We often see a final image and are struck by the color, light or texture of a world interpreted by the artist. It may be real, surreal, an impression or abstraction. We compare it to the experience and decide if it is truth or beauty, brutal reality or unjustly critical. It is in this end result of a lifetime of learning, and a continued quest for understanding that we stand and gaze at a photograph, canvas or sculpture and wonder what brought this work together as we see it." - John Horwitz
“My work is PostModern, mid 20th century, put another way; time… caught forever for you to ponder and enjoy, look at in wonderment or dismiss as casually as a shadow passing your doorstep. Look closely else it is gone forever with the whisps of tobacco smoke or the fine threads of cotton in the sweet summer sunshine of the South.” - John Horwitz
