Finding the balance between the polarities, the serious undertones, and a playful spirit.

Influenced by decades of experience as a nurse and psychotherapist, self-taught artist Linda Lou Horn highlights the potential of the old, the broken, and the damaged. Horn pairs expressive faces with her found object sculptures to explore universal themes of pain, fear, joy and humor. When positioned together, Horn’s cast reveals a complex and curious connection with each other and the viewer.
