R. Scott Horner

My abstract paintings are guided by chance and accidental discovery. They embrace the chaos and regularity, the calm entropy that pushes and pulls the world around us. By methodically layering thick and thin skins of paint, old events are covered up, sometimes rediscovered through transparency or scratch-throughs. In this way, the art builds its own history, allowing the viewers to read into it many stories.

R. Scott Horner is an abstract painter working primarily in acrylics and mixed media. He received a B.A. in graphic design from the University of Central Florida in 1990. In 2008, after a 20-year visual journalist career in Florida, Horner moved to North Carolina and turned his creative focus to painting.
