White Characters, 2013
These drawings are all small, five and half inches by four and a half inches. Pigmented pen on black rag paper. The “character” designation manifests my concern with developing a language of sorts, even though no character means anything, only itself. This group of nine was not the only time I dealt with this stepping…
50 Lines within a Square, 1973
These drawings adhered to the “concept” of doing them which is denoted by the titles. Seriously, the titles go on and on in a conceptual-art-descriptive format unfolding every detail of the idea that can be verbalized. Top: “25 Attempts to Fill a Square with 50 non-ruled lines…” Bottom: Top: “25 Attempts to Fill a Square…
Single Loopy Lines 1-9, 2013
I never stop believing in the simplicity of these kind of lines. Each is fourteen by eleven inches. Plain ol’ pen on rag paper.
Five Wavy Lines, 1973-4
These eleven drawings are only the beginning of repeating the same drawing intentions over and over again on the same-sized paper. I dealt with lines across the page here as if they marked horizon lines. My interest in the horizontal line equates with the view from my studio window at CalArts my last year and…
Untitled Drawings, 2012
These drawings have no meaning. They are mere vehicles to move the colored pencil around the paper in a fairly uniform way. They are all small, maybe 9 inches by 8 inches. A contrast to the large black and white drawings also executed in this year.
2021 Commission Installation, Washington, D.C.
This drawing is 67 inches in height and 57 inches wide. The media used are colored pencil and permanent marker on heavy rag paper.
These small drawings came out of seeing a tiny pile of twigs on my drawing table. The twigs had broken off apple tree branches with which I was making a large sculpture. I made the little pile because I knew that there was something interesting there. In order to find the vision I imagined I…
These drawings are derived from photographs that were taken of the hanging wrapped branch sculptures, the All Tied Up Series (https://lynhorton.net/category/art/2019/). Individual photographs were traced along a dividing line placed on a 15 inch by 11 inch piece of paper. The same traced image was then flipped and positioned in the other side of the…
30 Simples, Late Summer, 2020
These drawings are the products of discerning the language value of drawn images of branch sections and groupings, some of them stemming from my imagination.
Tree Kimono, 2019
The Tree Kimono is made in several parts. The total dimensions are 70 inches in width by 90 inches in height. The media are colored pencil and ink.
