Scratching at the Cave Walls is a visceral investigation into the power of mark-making—Christopher Horder expands his stain painting methodology into oil on board. 

As ever, the artist is searching for deeper meaning in life. The power of the structured image and the ethereal nature of an untamed imagination are at play here. The vision is one of extraordinary power and beauty. Referencing the Rococo and the Neolithic in the one picture plane, Horder—a shaman, challenges the viewer to journey into the void between the otherworldly and the real.
