ALL THE LIGHTS IN MY HOUSE
May 2, 2015 - June 15, 2015
NOTE: This is a Seed Space exhibition, curated by Rachel Bubis. Seed Space was founded by Adrienne Outlaw.
For this work, Horton removed all the lights from his home and installed them in Seed Space. He will be without lights in his home for the duration of the exhibition. During this time, the only lights on in the gallery will be the ones from his home. Horton describes this work as "a manifestation of a desire to share, to sacrifice, and to act benevolently as well as address ideas of history, myth, and poetry in art."
Rocky Horton was born in Arlington, Tennessee in 1973. He attended college at Harding University, in Searcy, Arkansas. After graduating in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Art, he lived and worked in Italy, first Milan then Naples, for approximately two years. He received an M.F.A. in Studio Art from West Virginia University in December of 2003. Since that time he has served as a Professor of Art at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee.
