Rebecca Horne artist statement
My photographs attempt to excavate the surfaces and moments of daily life and lived-in environments, like an archeology of feelings and buried intentions. I am a problem-solver in the studio, and I often create ephemeral sculptures and use time-based techniques. My photographs often begin as sketches and drawings–the effects and images are created in real time.
Sometimes my photographs are a document of a kind of private or semi-private performance. Often the enigmatic aspects I’m driving for escape me and simply evaporate under examination, other times, I prevail. To see what I’m currently working on, look at the Rebecca Horne Photography Blog section of this website.
Exhibition history includes solo exhibitions at Roebling Hall Gallery in New York City and Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, and multiple group shows including City Hall in San Francisco with SF Arts Commision, Center for Photography Woodstock, Perogi 2000 in Brooklyn and “Festival Off des Rencontres d’ Arles,” in Arles, France.
