The “Horizon Line” Project

Graham Thew November 12, 2018

I have amassed a body of work and investigations into the  concept we all know as “The Horizon” Reviewing what I have is going to take time and I need to determine to what end I have been heading. To date my investigations have led me to produce artwork of great variety, I have printwork, watercolours, photo-montage, drawings etc. etc. Along with a book of quotes each of which contain the word Horizon. I wonder if I shouldn’t just focus on one of these spheres of work and see how it takes me further?

I have enjoyed finding and reviewing the quotes and the many different ways we interpret the word and now have  over a hundred quotes from the famous and not so famous , from literary works and lyrics, from film scripts and poets, all with the word “Horizon” included. All hand-written in white on black within a book.
The quotes and indeed the other artworks all serve to demonstrate the many ways humankind has chosen to interpret this very special and enigmatic theme. A line that doesn’t actually exist yet one that holds physical and spiritual significance.
A line that raises questions about the edge of our world, perceived and actual boundaries and ultimately our very existence…….. I’ve  only just begun to scratch the surface!
