Artist Statement

I started painting to show that great art comes from a deep pool of experience. I believe that in art the spiritual and the physical come together in an act of divinity, to celebrate the experience of racial memories within the sacredness of the subconscious. In sleep, I see the traditional, physical realities of an image transcend into the greater divinity of the universe; thus, its true appearance. These images manifest from a place where the great and equal parts that make up the whole still exist, calling, crying out, giving me my purpose. I have faith in a painting’s power to ignite a fire where there is no smoke. Art should lift the vale of this feigned reality and from what is dark make light, unforeseen by perception. Now, with my existence dedicated to this ceremony of creation, I feel as an arrow loomed within the great bow of life, ready to be shot forth into the Mystery straight and fair, and when I land, only then, I will know my purpose has ended…

 Dreams in Motion: a Subconscious Mythology, is a deepening introspective exploration into a modern Native American mind as seen by artist Carises Horn through his interpretation of the mythology, philosophy, and religion of his culture.  Horn believes that in art, the spiritually and physicality of all life come together in an act of divinity to celebrate the sacredness of the subconscious mind. Through his art, the traditional realities of an image transport the viewer into a greater sense of a dream-like state, and to a world that lies somewhere between the conscious mind of our mechanical civilization and the place where one derives their own sacred source of inspiration. He encourages the viewing of his art as a way of lifting the veil of this reality and making visible that which is unseen by the conscious perceptions that influence our day-to-day life.  His art achieves the balance of real and surreal views of the universe that manifest in our sleep.
