Craigie Horsfield
British, b. 1949

Whether monumental photographs, films, or photorealistic tapestries, the works of Craigie Horsfield are imbued with a sense of “slow time,” a dilated moment that connects the present and the past that has help shaped it. In this vein, he prints photographs years after they are taken, as an investigation of time and memory. The human element is key in Horsfield’s work, especially in the “social projects“ that document the relationships between everyday people and places. He captures crowded, claustrophobic scenes of concerts, bullfights, dance halls, and religious ceremonies with the stillness and detail of the portraits of Diego Velázquez and other Old Masters. The artist’s practice continues to evolve along with the technology around him, as he experiments with advances in film, printing, and weaving.
