*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.

Black On Both Sides
PROCESS: My independent business allows me to personally manage every step of this process, from printing your reproduction through the final stage of shipping to ensure quality and consistency with every order. Original artwork is captured with a high-resolution H6D camera to ensure quality color reproduction then scanned and printed on Epson P9000 and P2000 printers. To support small businesses in my community, I partner with local, fine art printing experts that use an Epson enhanced matte paper for a bright white point that yields highly saturated images while maintaining excellent highlight and shadow detail.
SHIPPING: Each reproduction is made to order, so please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery. Orders are prepared myself with care and shipped in a secure tube. This item qualifies for free shipping when you spend over $450. Prints are final sale and non-returnable and do not include frames.
Thank you for being a part of my story that continues to be told—Gee.
