Wood sculptor Robyn Horn is drawn to volume, form, texture and negative space. Her abstracted sculptures convey her interest in geometry and the linear aspects of architecture.
Horn received her BA degree from Hendrix College (AR). Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Arts & Design (NY), the Detroit Institute of Art (MI), the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), the Mint Museum of Craft + Design (NC), the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum (DC), the Ogden Museum of Southern Art (LA) and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MN).
Robyn currently works from her studio in Central Arkansas.
“The process of wood materializing into stone shapes is the basis of what I am trying to accomplish creatively. My latest series, Architectural Elements, deals with structures that are reminiscent of fortresses or temples. The heavy textures suggest layers of dry laid stones. I was surprised at the effect that groupings of these pieces achieve. They become more of an installation or village when they are displayed together.”
