It had all the appearances / of what it meant / to be / carved out from the outer / of its interior / but truly / it was a masquerade / a falsity / shrouded in blindness / unkept yet / surfacly groomed. / its appearance / gleamed / of perfection. / daunting in its glamour / and its ability to seduce / arousing, / it served / its purpose / well. / it contented all. / yet deeper / below the underbelly, / the soft spoken part left / exposed / and vulnerable, / was this and only this. / no more or less / simply, a confiscated counterfeit / of denial / and / undeniably / yet falsely / true. Susan Hornbeak-Ortiz’s profound, emotionally-charged sculptural works and installations have been widely exhibited in both the U.S. and Europe. t r u e, the artist’s contribution to our One Picture Book series, blankets the reader/listener in waves of red warmth. Comprising twelve details of a frame from the artist’s film Sacrifice, embedded with lines from her poem True, the book and its accompanying audio CD leave one breathless and longing for that which is already near. Limited quantity. A master of orchestration, Hornbeak-Ortiz combines a variety of unconventional artistic elements to describe the complexities of woman’s nature. – Artweek
