Emily Van Horn lives and works in Venice California as a holistic healer and abstract painter. Her work tends to express herself in fragments or small pieces of information which give subtle reference to an idea, feeling, or experience. With support of the grid for structure words become marks and a dialogue begins. A hierarchy emerges and decisions are made regarding what it essential and what to let go of-an approach often employed in abstract painting. Layering and removing paint, adding and covering line the conversation continues until a particular frequency that resonates and there is a sense of balance and connection.
