Hopkins Hall Gallery
Reception: Thursday, June 25, 3-4PM
These two Master of Fine Arts graduate students will present their unique work in a joint exhibition.
This body of work is both a mourning of what once was, and an attempt at repairing what could have been. The work is made up of taped-together delusion, naïveté, and memory, all housed within a clubhouse--a girlhood place to hide secrets, notes, artifacts, and feelings.
Botanical Drawings explore the application of an expressive, intuitive drawing process on a variety of surfaces. Drawing from direct observation of living houseplants, Horning translates visually dynamic structures within each plant into a set of energetic lines and shapes. Quick, immediate markmaking records my observations, and the accumulation of these marks over time yields a larger abstract composition. Horning hopes that this process of observation, recording, and repetition will serve as a framework to support and reveal new structures and possibilities within these forms.
