Emerging artist Matt Horick’s sculptures transform steel into vessels that are both familiar in their clean lines and alien in their unexpected curves and surreal sense of balance. Referencing Modernist concerns of the object’s relation to the pedestal, Horick utilizes balance, tension, and color to bridge the two. Minimal yet dynamic, Horick’s steel sculptures are a continuation of themes developed with early ceramic vessels that were the focus of his undergraduate studies at Winthrop University.
Matt Horick received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture from Winthrop University in 2013. In addition to developing his own work, Horick has played a vital role in the fabrication of work for past McColl Center residents, including the creation of aluminum structures for Brandon Ballengee’s Love Motels for Insects project, and his work has been featured both in juried shows and joint exhibitions throughout South Carolina. Horick was recently awarded his first public art commission in Rock Hill, SC.
