Off the Beaten Path

Rodrigo/ Roundup


In a recent speaker series event, Stephen Horn spoke about his inspirations, his past, his motivations and his love for surfing at the Pierce College Art Building Feb. 24.

Ceramicist and Cal State Fullerton graduate, Horn lectured on his exhibit entitled “Off the Beaten Path” prior to a reception in the art gallery featuring his work.

“I hope people are drawn into the piece[s],” said Horn. “I don’t like to express ideas, I don’t like to tell people what to think.”

Horn finds inspirations from the works of artists like Pablo Picasso, Robert Motherwall, and especially the “Mad Potter of Biloxi,” George Ohr.

According to Horn, his work has a strong Japanese influence with strong attention to the Japanese aesthetic of appreciating the natural flaws found in artwork.

“The way he uses different pieces and puts them together to make one of those beautiful abstract objects its interesting,” said Carolina Gonzalez, a 24-year-old business major. “I enjoyed the experience.”

Never taking art in high school, Horn decided to be an artist when he saw friends working with ceramics, realizing that was his passion.

“What impressed me the most were the patterns he has used and the way he repeated them,” said 20-year-old Karla Lemus, biology science major.

The exhibit will remain open through March 15.
