Chris Horner

“The excitement for me is within the material, converting and transforming the original quality of a surface is what shapes my practice. This unravels a new beginning from what was seen previously and opens up many inquiries into new ways of thinking and recording data. I like to refigure the original identity and characteristics of already used surfaces and objects. How the unseen aspect and nature of a surface or object is commonly hidden and not thought of, I like to impose a new condition which uncovers new openings, taking away the concealed or non-exposed trait.”
Chris Horner
