Drawings by Zach Horn
Surreal and off-beat drawings based on the zany thoughts that course through his mind on a daily basis. Using almost no source material, the invented drawings are a reflection of the artist's life and the viewer is enriched by having encountered his work.
These drawings are about my life, my memories, my psychology. I don't plan them out. There is no order. The hardest part is not to filter. I have to trust that every stupid, off-beat, taboo idea bubbled up for a reason. I think that it's healthier for the drawings (and definitely therapeutic for me) to let it all out on the page. In the past they have called this inner voice, the muse, the subconscious, or the lizard brain. It's all the same thing, trusting that little goblin in my head. I end up drawing whatever makes me the most uncomfortable, what I have never seen but would like to, what makes me laugh. Some of this work is a little bit weird, but I guess I am too.Zach Horn is an adjunct professor at the University of Massachusetts in Boston.
