WESTERN WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY LIBRARY PRESENTS:

 

AN EMOTIONAL YOUNG PERSON JUST LIKE YOURSELF

 

AN EXHIBITION BY WESTON HORNER

           

I have many questions and insecurities I struggle with in my work. My questions revolve around how art and society interact, and examining "common sense" especially in regards to money and education. How much time we get to be in an educational system versus how much of our lives we try to function in an economic system is a puzzling proportion to me. My work means to demonstrate our shared responsibility to continuously reform ourselves and how that privilege to think sprouts opportunities for learning and sharing thoughts regardless of any social status.

Gallery 2 (Wilson 3, Balcony) - see gallery description

This exhibit explores snapshots of an individual: the hand, foot, shoulder, back and a partial view of the face.  Drawn in black and white charcoal on colored paper, the colors are muted.  The interest lies more in the forms themselves.

The intent behind this set of drawings is to examine.  Examine your hands.  They enable you-to climb a mountain, to swim in the sea, to do what you love and interact with the world.  They tell a story, always in a state of change; perhaps growing, freckling, or aging.  Perhaps the skin has grown tough from hard work or the muscles have grown strong from lifting and climbing, adapting to what we need from them.  The same ideas can be applied to the rest of the human form.
