Offer Expires on 9/31/11 In his artist’s statement, Horswill explains


that humankind is surrounded by all kinds of life forms and what is clear to him is that “we are no different from any other life form on this planet. We have tremendous capacity to create and destroy; yet ultimately we are caught up, just like a fungus, with the predicament of living right now. My relationship with nature is at the center of what I do. Direct connection with the majesty of nature is humbling, as I recognize that human beings are only a small part of a vast, beautiful mystery.” His journey to illustrate the “beautiful includes


mystery” years of education at


Montana State University, a year studying at Kansai Gaidai University in Japan, the School of Visual Concepts, Shoreline College and the University of Washington in Seattle and finally, the University of Idaho, where he received a master of fine arts. He spent some time as a cartoonist and illustrator and, since 1998, he has been inspiring young artists as a tenured, full-time art professor at North Idaho College teaching sculpture, two and three dimensional design, drawing, art history and illustration. For the last ten years, Horswill has been represented by the Art Spirit Gallery in Coeur d’Alene. Having a “day job”


allows Horswill the


freedom to find his place in art. He calls it an “ongoing evolution of development” that is much more esoteric than mainstream; he takes risks, pulling ideas from depths not often charted but necessary to expand a viewer’s view of the world in which he/she lives. As an inventor, Horswill seemingly stops time with his work, even for an instant, bringing together the past, the present and the future, a fleeting sigh of the present moment and a sudden realization that somehow everything is connected.
