Luce Center Quote

“I think in terms of wood and stone, of the things of which nature is made, of the ease with which nature develops into shapes and forms, created through centuries of accumulated time.” Robyn Horn, Connell Gallery

Luce Center Label

Robyn Horn’s textured sculptures are representations of geodes. She is fascinated by the contrast between rough stone and the smooth planes of crystal that have taken shape over the centuries. The small hollow of Seven Liner rests like a bubble on water and draws the viewer’s eye from the rough, heavy exterior to the polished curves of the interior.
