Lori Horowitz Biography
Art reflects the conditions and emotions of life we experience through image and form. Creating art based on society, political issues and the environment is the premise of my work. I am drawn to architectural construction vs. deconstruction in the environment and the psychological components behind the scenes. In the series “Kings Park Psychiatric Hospital”, I explore the relationship with the past and present and have researched the changes over time. These photos capture decomposition of the structures within nature as well as the nature of confinement and debilitation in the institution. This body of work archives the current conditions of Kings Park / Nissequogue Park site for the future so we remember its’ past history. These structures are currently being demolished, many of which are already gone. Through my sensitivity to subject matter, I strive to expose the beauty of decay, and aging. Lori received a BFA in Visual Arts from S.U.N.Y. Purchase. She has been involved with teaching, designing and creating art to promote the spread of culture and creative expression. I have educated students, created sculpture and multi- media artwork as well as theatrical sets for TV /theater and film. Throughout her career, she continues to produce sculptures and paintings, accumulating a large body of artwork while showing my work in galleries and museums . In 2013, she started a community initiative on Long Island opening a not-for-profit artspace, “Studio 5404” bringing cultural arts to Long Island, NY. After a successful three and a half years, she closed the gallery 2016 to concentrate on her own artwork and curating shows to share with the public. Horowitz’s process of working with photography, wire, papier mache, copper and painting shows her proficiency with materials. She has been experimenting with copper and its’ properties combing painting along with wire sculpture and theatrical lighting. Ultimately, she has developed a technique “Painting with Fire” where images are burned into copper with the appearance of two way mirrors changing significantly based on lighting. The light bounces off the copper pieces reflecting a strong image while the mesh shows a translucent after image. She burns images into the surface of reflective copper creating subjects that are then sculpted and manipulated with intricate detail. Lighting and shadow play a key role in this innovative, figurative analysis is a socio/ psycho study that brings light to the attention seekers and the overlooked of our society.
