In celebration of the release of Rolfe Horn's new monograph, 28 Photographs (Nazraeli Press), Soulcatcher Studio is pleased to represent him and present this exhibition.
|"Art is an expression of life that transcends both time and space. We must explore our own souls through art to give a new form and a new meaning to the nature of the world. The creation of a photograph is the unfolding of the personality, the deepening of the personal dimension of the soul. I hope my images bring to you the wonder I have seen." ~Rolfe Horn
Rolfe Horn is one of the most promising talents to emerge in the field of fine art photography in recent years. Wise beyond his thirty-six years of age, he seeks to create a new style of visual storytelling, rather than simply copy the traditional views of Western landscape masters of the past.
Having graduated with numerous honors from the prestigious Brooks Institute in 1996, Rolfe set out to record the subtle nuances found in his native California, producing dream-like imagery, often under cover of darkness. More recently he has embarked on numerous journeys that include time spent exploring the mystic landscapes of Japan, Cambodia and Thailand.
In 1998 Rolfe had the great fortune to be hired as an assistant for Michael Kenna. He worked intensely with Kenna for over three years, all the while honing his own craft. Through his collaboration Rolfe became keenly aware of the subtleties of the fine art print: the balance of tonality, composition, the movement of the eye within the image, as well as perfecting the finished piece. He has become a perfectionist in the darkroom, spending hour after hour, day after day perfecting his craft with incredible results. Each finished print is a true work of art, created by hand and unique unto itself.
Rolfe's photographs have been shown in numerous exhibitions since 1989 and are held in many private and public collections such as the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX.
Each image is offered in a limited edition of 45 prints (and six Artist Proofs). Prices start at $800, increase as the edition sells out and are subject to change without prior notice.
All photographs are archivally processed by hand, mounted on 100% cotton rag, acid-free four ply museum board, over-matted and ready to frame.
10 x 10 inch prints are over-matted on 18 x 20 inch board
8 x 10, 8 x 8 inch prints over-matted on 16 x 20 inch board
(Negative dates prior to 2000 are 8 x 8 inch prints.)
