  Christopher Horder’s monumental ‘Hotel Tiepolo: Motel Monet’, draws on the compositional tension that Venetian Giambattista Tiepolo so directly applied to the ceilings of the great palaces of Europe in the mid-eighteenth century. Horder’s clustering of marks revolve around his stretched linen—mirroring the significant moments of the extraordinary Venetian.

Dark stains in ink bloom from the alchemy of water and the sun’s UV rays. Horder creates marks that are layered over swathes of watercolour that ebb and flow like the strata of sandstone rock—abstract in form only—not thematic intent.
