Nancy Kuhl, The Book Remembers Everything: “The Living Locally series celebrates the landscape, culture, and community of Van Horn’s adopted home in rural Tipperary, Ireland. …
The 25th in the Living Locally series Van Horn discusses the various aspects of tea culture in her community.
Beinecke Library, Yale University: “Erica Van Horn regularly draws the subject of her work directly from the fabric of her daily life, her domestic and artistic work, the simple household objects at hand, the day-to-day aspects of familiar relationships… Her attention to the ‘everyday’ is also an act of recording that which is most important to her; Van Horn creates work that serves as an aid to memory and acts as a hedge against the inevitable passing of one day to the next… and celebrates the significant but often unnoticed habits and customs of family and friendship, the exquisite qualities of home, the work of making art.”
