“We bring our own creativity into what we see—the seams get filled in, smoothed over, by our looking.”
Andrea Hornick (born 1970) is an artist working in painting, sound, and text, generated with a ritual practice. She holds a B.A. from Oberlin College and an M.F.A. from the San Francisco Art Institute. She also studied at the New York Studio School. Unbounded Histories, her most recent one-person exhibition, was a sound project at The Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia—the first contemporary work in their Collection Galleries. She is currently represented by Sears Peyton Gallery in New York and Los Angeles. She has had one-person exhibitions at David Krut Projects, NY; Savery Gallery, Philadelphia; and Jen Bekman, NY. A discussion between Hornick and the anthropologist, Tim Ingold, has just appeared on Public Books. Other articles, interviews, and reviews have been in Hyperallergic, Artsy, LA Times, NPR, Philadelphia Enquirer, and elsewhere. She taught at the University of Pennsylvania in Fine Arts and Architecture from 2012–2021, and has taught at Barnard College, Oberlin College, Auckland University (NZ), and as a Museum Teacher at The Jewish Museum, The Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, The Morgan Library, and the Museum of Natural History. Hornick lives in Berlin and New York.
