Sue E. Horowitz

Sue E. Horowitz’s art education is largely self-taught and solitary in nature. Through sculpture and mixed media, her work embraces the natural world and incorporates its ephemeral voice among manufactured things. Contradiction and irony are central to her work. Usually small in scale, her work draws the viewer in for a closer inspection. Her work has been shown at Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, SUNY New Paltz, Muroff-Kotler SUNY Ulster, Stone Ridge, Roos Arts, Rosendale, NY, Donskoj, Kingston, NY, and OPUS 40, Saugerties, NY. Her recent awards include acceptance in ArtVetting online and participation in NYFA MARK 12 Bootcamp.

Sue E. Horowitz is creating Inhale, a series of cast wax hands installed on several trees along the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail. At a glance, these hands look like small, peculiar growths on a tree. But their form and sheer number beckon us to take a closer look. The hands appear clenched in worried anticipation as if expressing anxiety about what’s to come.
