*Original Drawing acquired by The Cincinnati Art Museum, 2022


“Black on Both Sides” is a meditation on the complexities of male adolescence, preservation of innocence, objectification of the Black body and the constant struggle to be seen, heard, respected and loved. This drawing debuted in Horton's first solo exhibition, "Coming of Age",  at the Alice F. & Harris K. Weston Art Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio in November of 2021. The "Coming of Age" series is conceptualized to explore, celebrate and affirm the innate innocence and vulnerability of black youthfulness. This portrait is of his own 14-year-old nephew and serves as Horton's style of next-generation narration, which is becoming a channel for Horton to study his own adolescence.
