ARTIST STATEMENT

James Horner is a visual artist who lives in New York City. Horner has experimented with drawing, painting, printmaking, video, clothing design, and photography. His works explore the psychological effects of the environment on individuals. Figures are often abstracted to the point of the grotesque and overwhelmed or torn apart by their surroundings. Shapes interact with figures in space as lines connect atmospheres in different directions, creating islands with systems of thought.
