Horkay's Museum Factory series combines original drawn and painted images, appropriated
masterpieces, photographs, artists' signatures and commercial logos.
These elements are digitally assembled, collaged, to create a single, layered moment reflecting
different places and times.
This work is post pop, post modern pop art.
Where as Warhol took moments from popular culture and turned them into history, Horkay takes
history and turns it into a moment, as though the past millennium was a monolithic unit of time.
