Horn West

Soulcatcher Studio is pleased to present the first exhibition of a dynamic, new body of work by Rolfe Horn. Horn spent the better part of the last year exploring the American West. Our exhibition starts right here in the arid, high desert country of New Mexico. It then travels West, through Arizona and on to Horn's native California, before ending on the lush Oregon coast.

Horn is one of the most promising talents to emerge in the field of fine art photography in recent years. Horn 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. 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.

"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'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.
