ShangriLa is the fictional land of ideals: beautiful; ageless; perfection. First proposed in James Hilton’s novel ‘Lost Horizon’; in this expressionist work Webb’s horizon is the literal and figurative accent of the duality between reality and ideal. The shining brightness and sharply carved ideal is presented in simple terms. The reality is entirely different; built in layers of patterns; thoughts and ideas; some visible immediately; others glimpsed only after consideration. Webb seeks to suggest unseen depths; richer; more complex and far more interesting than a fictional ‘ideal’ - but darker; without doubt; and full of unknowns.
