The Patterns of Peter Horowitz, Painter.
Born. 1922, Poland.
Immigrated to Israel 1966.
It is often said that writers have a single story within them that they keep trying to tell, over and over. The same can be said, I think, for most artists. Did you notice how Horowitz has Sancho Panza emerging in the lower right corner of both paintings as Quixote moves from right to left? The windmill occupies the same coordinates in both images, and an abstract city populates the background. In the painting on the left, the silhouette of a tree thrusts upward, left of center. The cliff and the windmill do the same in the image on the right.
Pattern recognition is the primary function of the right hemisphere of the brain. Sometimes the pattern is visual. Sometimes musical. Sometimes behavioral. But always the pattern exists.
