Susan Horn

Minnesota artist Susan Horn received her BFA in Studio Arts from the University of Minnesota. She has studied painting with abstract expressionist Ralph Brown and Chinese landscape artist Zhuo Hejun of Hang Zhou Ching, China. Horn was a member of the Northern Warehouse Sculpture Cooperative and the Figure Drawing Cooperative at the University of Minnesota, and most recently, she completed a commission for American Art Resources in Houston, Texas. Susan has been influenced by those traditions in European and American painting that emphasize color and tonal relationships combined with strong composition.

Artist Statement:

For the past 24 years I have been living in the St Croix River Valley. I mention this because I have come to realize that the way I paint is related to this fact. The high blue skies, the rolling prairie and open vistas of this rich river valley have a unique light and color all their own. ‘Painting,’ as Matisse said, ‘is light,’ and painting evokes this experience unlike any other art form. My hope as a painter is that, in some small way, I have captured this quality of light and that these paintings could have been made in no other time or place.
