    Rape. 1998.
    171 x 672 x 48cm.
    Wool and brick wall.
    Danielle Arnaud Gallery, London.

    “There is often a subtle social register to her work. “Ray”, a concrete paving stone wrapped in a wool blanket, recalls the plight of homelessness, yet paradoxically suggests there is joy in every individual life, while “Rape” a dazzling yellow wool and brick wall, mimics the colour of oilseed rape. Obviously the word ‘rape’ has violent sexual overtones, but there is a more playful register – Horton knitted the covering for a wall that gallery owner Danielle Arnaud was knocking down in her garden.”
