Artist-in-Residence 2009: Sienna Horton

SUPERFRONT architecture gallery and project space is proud to announce the first SUPERFRONT Artist-in-Residence, SIENNA HORTON. Sienna – a painter, multi-media and performance artist from Alaska – will be exploring work with furniture and preparing for a land-based installation in Alaska during her 6 month residency.

As a painter, Sienna works with a process of paint and paper on canvas to create layered fields that evoke topography, quilting and colorful explosions. In 2006 Sienna’s Brooklyn studio was featured as a set in John Cameron Mitchell’s feature film “Shortbus.” Since 2006, Sienna has been producing and editing “Ambulomancy,” a digital film project that relates live performance to the sublimity of contemporary Alaskan landscapes.

The residency program at SUPERFRONT offers emerging artists and architects 3-6 month opportunities to research and fabricate projects. The residency offers no funding, only space and access to the resources of SUPERFRONT, which include a woodshop, a growing collection of AV equipment, access to Materials for the Arts, and curatorial support.
