Timothy Horn is an interdisciplinary artist who works with multiple media, including blown glass, cast lead crystal, and various metals. Horn’s work interrogates the “area of slippage” between the organic and the artificial, exploring the meeting point between the natural and constructed worlds. Over the past decade, his work has been inspired by patterns of 17th century jewelry, and 19th-century studies of natural forms such as lichen, coral and seaweed.
Timothy Horn lives and works in Truro, Massachusetts. Born in Melbourne, Australia, he studied Sculpture at the Victorian College of the Arts and then Glass at the Australian National University. A Samstag Scholarship brought him to the US in 2002, where he completed graduate study at Massachusetts College of Art. His current “Tree of Heaven” and “Gorgonian” series, were recently exhibited at the 2018 Adelaide Biennial and with PPOW Gallery in New York. Horn’s work has been featured in exhibitions at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, GoMA in Brisbane, and the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.
