"...Horace Farlowe's recent works represent the culmination of thirty-seven years of stone carving and painting research. The sculptures, in particular, are an evolution toward a complex goal of spontaneity. Success for this sculptor is defined by the hard appearing easy, by the illusion that the laborious is easy. A sculpture may be carved from many blocks of marble which are then combined, juxtaposed and assembled, suggesting in the result of almost spontaneous generation. The paintings, like many of the sculptures, are about passageways, archways, bridges and windows. The journey for the perceiver is a round trip from the real to the imaginary and illusory and back. There is an interplay of architectonic form and free space (a comfortable atmosphere)."

Dr. William Squires Professor of Art Criticism Lamar Dodd School of Art The University of Georgia
