New Artist Interview: Harriet Horton

New Artist Interview: Harriet Horton

Harriet Horton Taxidermy Artists talks to Contemporary Collective about her work

Harriet's uniquely fresh take on the traditional medium of taxidermy attracted us to her works instantly - who else has ever combined neon lighting with animal sculpture? We were absolutely delighted when she agreed to have a meeting with us, and even more so when she accepted our offer of representation with Contemporary Collective. Since joining a few weeks ago, Harriet's piece King, a delicate sleeping ermine stoat illuminated by a neon pink crown has found himself a new home, where we hope he will be much enjoyed.

Currently exhibiting in Contemporary Collective’s group painting show ‘Painting The Future’ at DegreeArt.com’s Vyner Street Gallery, Ozlem Demirel talks to us about the current state of Contemporary Art.
 
I am always fascinated by light, so my favorite period has to be the 1960's Light and Space Movement. I am also very inspired by geometric abstraction, so I can't go without mentioning the beginning of 1915's Suprematist Movement with Malevich.

WATCH THE HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE LAKE ISLAND RESIDENCY

If you missed our residency at Lake Island, we have it all captured here.

What if a modern-day explorer grew tired of the metropolis and sought out an area of wilderness in which to live? What if he built a cabin in a small patch of wasteland and lived there happily ever after...until one day when he mistakenly stepped onto a bus and was never seen again. What would be left of his existence?

A 6 week residency involving four artists; Mark Morgan Dunstan, Estella Castle, James Mansfield and Martha Beaumont.
