Press Release

"Game Over"

January 18 - February 12, 2005

Texas Gallery
2012 Peden Street
Houston, TX 77019

Texas Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Houston artist Paul Horn. In this, the artist’s second solo show at the gallery, large and elaborate 3-D collages incorporate drawings, text and found objects as well as appropriated and manipulated commercial images. Like children’s pop-up books gone punk and in need of a parental discretion rating, the collages continue Horn’s obsessive assembling of images of popular culture – from cartoons, anime and video games; Osama bin Laden, Tinkerbelle, Superman, the Simpsons, Shrek and Spongebob Squarepants are all jumbled together into overlapping themes of death, destruction, desire, consumerism, and media fueled public anxieties. There are 9 large collages included in the show, all from 2004. There will be a reception of the artist from 6 - 8 pm on Tuesday, January 18. The show will continue until February 12.

For further information, please contact Nancy Douthey.
