Artist Statement CHRIS HORNER
Horner believes that the excitement in the material is built from the motion of the subconscious mind.
‘Materials which have been used to their full potential are what interest me, as I like to restore and bring back to life a character from within the property of the surface. I find myself building a relationship with the particular surface I am working with. This must be an intense connection where new meanings and languages can be informed. I see this as a playful journey where collaboration between artist, material and process unfolds, for me this is also when you convert, transform and materialize a new beginning from what was seen previous. For me painting and sculpture go hand in hand, they feed off one another'.
