wall space gallery 116 East Yanonali St C-1 Santa Barbara,
A Conversation with Ted Mills and artist Sue Van Horsen
Saturday March 16th from 4:00-5:30, with a reception following.
Sue Van Horsen, Heidi Kirkpatrick, and Yvette Meltzer
8 February- 23 March, 2013
Sue Van Horsen, based in Santa Barbara, crafts stories from discarded household objects, commercial appliances, and other found materials, weaving her personal photographs and unattributed images together to give new lives to previously anonymous gadgetry. We are also pleased to have on hand a selection of Sue’s crafted guitars, also made from found objects. We will have 5 of these very special one of a kind instruments.
Sue Van Horsen- taking discarded objects, repurposing and giving them new life, I see myself as a ringmaster-cum-craftsman/folk artist. Through the use of industrial, food service and architectural items, I construct small windows in which the viewer is invited to spy upon an inner landscape. The images I incorporated are either my own, or may have come from discards and trash or were found on the internet. Not forsaking or negating the life each item may have had before, I resuscitate and give them new meaning.
About wall space gallery –
Wall Space Gallery first opened in Seattle, Washington in 2005. Our focus is on new artists and expanding the ideas of what photography is as well as what it can be. Our artists are craftsman, using photography as an integral part of their work, but layering emotional stories with techniques and processes that enhance the visual experience. The gallery has gained an international reputation for finding and showcasing new artists and exposing new ideas. The gallery opened our Santa Barbara location in 2010 again taking the lead in showcasing artists who transcend the medium, looking to expand the photographic arts. In addition to our exhibition schedule, we have a series of artist lectures and community events.
