This will be Horowitz’s first exhibition with COMA, and also his first exhibition in Australia. Thank you. That was most illuminating. will include painting, work on paper, and video work. Often humorous in their content and even their titles, the artworks are references to the relationship between art history, the entertainment industry, internet culture and commercial advertising.
Horowitz approaches painting from a cinematographic standpoint, similar to the process of video making — from creative writing and mood boards, to casting, location scouting, propping, dialogue adaptation, establishing mise-en-scène, improvisation and editing — he chooses characters and backgrounds of display that fluctuate between landscapes, interiors and still lifes while enacting personas that could range from anywhere between Greek goddesses to the weather man.
