For the past decade, Horn has been inspired by 17th-century jewelry patterns by Gilles Legaré, court jeweler to Louis XIV. “Sparkling like gem-laden stomachers fashioned for a fairy-tale giant or standing their ground like delicate escapees from a fever dream, Timothy Horn’s bizarrely beautiful sculptures are baroque fantasias that the Australian-born, US-based artist has described as “taking objects from an historical realm and re-contextualizing them, using the language of the decorative arts,” states decorative arts authority, Mitchell Owens.
