Biography

Sky Hoorne (Ostend, 01980) aka Sky++ is a multidisciplinary visual artist, writer and philosopher. Her main themes: wholeness, realness, movement, inscendence.

Sky grew up as a shy and creative kid with a wide variety of interests. In her early twenties, still stuck in a loner masculine persona, she had a first artistic burst: apart from drawing and writing she recorded a 100% DIY hip hop demo album that got some acclaim. After she obtained an MsC in Computer Science (VUBrussels) she studied Printmaking/Illustration at Luca School of Arts (Ghent) for a short time. Around this period, among other things, she self-published two hard poetry books and created an experimental comic strip.

In the Summer of 02004, set in motion by longterm self-observation, contemplation and a couple of extraordinary circumstances, her outlook on life shifted permanently. This in turn necessitated a long journey of integration.

The ambition to be a magazine cartoonist did not last very long. A lengthy artistic hiatus ensued due to undiagnosed, chronic physical illness. A day job in IT provided income (and still). During this period she eagerly studied the philosophy and (meta)physics of David Bohm in her free time and digested a lot of mind science studies and books on eastern philosophy/religion. Body work also became more prominent. Written meditations were put out infrequently. A gender shift happened.
Around 02017 the physical ailments started to get dissolved and it became again possible to produce more artwork. Getting in contact with Pari Center (Italy) and some of the people affiliated also set in motion numerous projects and ideas. Eventually many years of observation, research and pondering produced the idea of “contexting/active context”, a practical approach to Bohm’s concepts of holoflux and implicate and explicate order.

In recent years Sky took up drawing, cartooning, ceramic sculpting, painting, photo collage … all in the vein of inscendence and generative imagination, two key notions that got formalized in 02021/22.
She is bound to explore new paths, building on the legacy of some of the giants in art history. Her work is infused with meaning and with different ways to (re)create realities.

Sky keeps upping her imaginative and creative skills while trying to find ways to reach a wider audience.
