High House Gallery is proud to present a selection of oils on canvas by Marguerite Horner
Fast gaining a reputation for her pensive, yet understated paintings, Horner's critically-acclaimed works depict ordinary scenes, appearing as elusive snapshots which have captured lost moments in time.
This effect is heightened by her use of a square canvas format, and a minimal, often muted colour palette combined with a manipulation of focus. Through this framework she is able to explore a variety of emotions, often inducing feelings of transience or intimacy, loss or hope.
Many of her works are reminiscent of film stills, or suggest a photo-realism.
High House Gallery
Founded in 2011 and situated within a grade II listed Victorian mansion and recently-restored formal gardens located in the Oxfordshire village of Clanfield, the gallery promotes only the best in critically-engaged contemporary art.
