As an untrained artist working in the folk tradition, I use recycled materials. I am grateful for the example set by people who are surviving and creating art through the use of local resources. Their inventiveness has challenged me to create works that contrast with our own “throwaway society”.

I am a Cincinnati native. With the exception of my years studying in Chicago, I spent my career as an Art educator in Cincinnati. My teaching experience was diverse and driven by my own love of making Art and sharing my passion of the creative process. It was always important for me to remain active as an artist in the local community by participating  in shows as much as I could while teaching.

Retired from teaching, I am now fully immersed in my own work and exhibiting. I have been engaged in Encaustic painting and Coldwax painting for more than 30 years. I am a member of the Encaustic Art Institute of New Mexico.

Zach Van Horn was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio where he currently resides. He earned his BFA in Drawing and Painting from The Ohio State University in 2013 and earned his MFA from The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 2018. He has shown work in Philadelphia and New York City. Though primarily a painter, he also plays in other mediums including sculpture, writing, music production, and video. Zach has also run five marathons (the Columbus Marathon twice and the Philadelphia Marathon three times).

My studio practice resembles the night sky where each star represents an idea I am interested in exploring. Among these ideas include but are not limited to consciousness, alchemy, technology, memories, and dreams. After studying these stars more closely, I can begin to draw connections between them, forming constellations. My work is the visual representation of these constellations. As the universe expands towards infinity then hopefully my work will grow towards infinity.

Lots of degrees, none matter for painting. That comes from someplace I only exist in for short periods of time.
