Azusa Pacific University Master of Fine Arts student Heather Hornbeak, a photographic artist from Nashville, Tennessee, showcases her exhibition “Deleted Landscapes” at Robert Bullock Gallery, located on APU’s East Campus, at 901 East Alosta Ave. The free event runs now through July 22 with an opening reception on July 18 from 6-7:30 p.m.

“Deleted Landscapes” is a collection of photographic images portraying the delicate relationship between structure and landscape. Some photographs are stripped of vegetation and natural landforms, capturing only human-constructed edifices. Hornbeak said the display demonstrates how, “the absence of nature calls attention to unique distinctions between old and new construction.”

“I transform spaces,” Hornbeak said. “It gives me bliss to see one location mutate into another.”

Hornbeak who holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Union University in Tennessee will complete her MFA at APU this year. She is a faculty member at Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky, where she teaches interactive media, publication design, and photography. She previously taught photography at Union University.
