American ceramics artist Mindy Horn’s meticulously constructed wall reliefs are composed of minuscule, seemingly identical pieces. Within the medallions, each tiny, hand-formed component’s individuality is lost amid the larger picture. The same process, guided largely by muscle memory, determines each design element—beads, thorns, sticks—yet each element is slightly different. In assembling the work, Horn seeks to create a resonance in the tension between the sameness of the multitude of components and the subtle but distinct variations between them.The patterns and rhythms embody the idea that the whole is much more than a sum of its parts.
