Horton is a 29 year-old artist living in London. The largely self-taught practitioner, tired of the traditional presentation of taxidermy, lends the ancient art a surreal and contemporary pop twist.
Horton’s approach to taxidermy has always set out to explore animals in a foreign environment from their original habitat. The use of dyes and lighting allow a playful narrative to a medium that sometimes holds a macabre association. It’s this juxtaposition of organic material with neon lighting that has become her signature style.
We are delighted to be working with Harriet and are looking forward to new works arriving online and in the galleries from March 2017. Please don’t hesitate to enquire about works and availability.
