White Columns

White Room Rebecca Watson Horn

White Columns is pleased to present a solo exhibition by the New York-based artist Rebecca Watson Horn. The exhibition consists of six recent paintings that Watson Horn describes as “psycho-spiritual.” She sees painting as a means to explore spirituality, the mind, the senses, and to “re-imagine an other self.” Watson Horn complicates the space of her paintings by building up a surface over time and mixing in pumice and sand. The text in her paintings is taken from a reading on Zen and 12 step recovery, a Jewish proverb, and the teaching of the Theravada Buddhists, Thanissara, Kittisaro, and Ajahn Sucitto.

Watson Horn is also a member of Canaries, a healing collective of women and gender non-conforming people living and working with autoimmune conditions and other chronic illnesses.

Rebecca Watson Horn (b. Boston, MA) received a BFA from The Cooper Union in 2007, an MFA Mason Gross from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ in 2015 and is currently studying at The Mountain School of Arts, Los Angeles. Horn had a solo exhibition, “Rub It In,” at Soloway, Brooklyn, NY. She has participated in several group exhibitions including “All Always Ready,” as part of Nancy Lupo’s solo exhibition at Kristina Kite, Los Angeles, CA; “Objectified,” Bromfield Gallery, Boston, MA; “X,” Lyles & King, New York, NY; “Young Painters Exhibition,” Hiestand Galleries, Miami University, Oxford, OH; “Role Over,” Gowanus Loft, Brooklyn, NY; “Canaries,” Cleopatra’s, Brooklyn, NY, and at Hotel Pupik, Scheifling, Austria. Horn lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
