lives and works in Australia

Anna Horne is exploring materiality, process, and the transience of the physical world through the field of sculpture. Horne’s work references the domestic and architectural space by utilising both industrial and commonplace materials. Through experimentation in the studio, she re-examines and plays with the order of functional materials within the context of contemporary sculpture. The artist employs methods of casting and assemblage whilst combining structural materials like concrete, floor vinyl and styrofoam with found items such as beach balls, plastic bags and wine sacks to create sculptures exploring tension, contradiction and balance. Through the forces and oppositions in Anna Horne’s art practice, she produces sculptures contending between light and heavy, soft and hard, familiar and strange.
