12 Artists in Summer Group Shows Who Deserve Solo Shows, Artsy, Aug 2017. 

[...] Hornby’s untitled sculpture, a highlight of this 13-artist show, might remind you of a fragment of an ornately carved walnut table, albeit one that’s scaled for a giant. [...] This visual puzzle is a multi-layered art-historical reference. The woman is a three-dimensional rendering of Henri Matisse’s cut-out Acrobat (1952). When Hornby doubled the rendering [...] he found that the result looked, from the front, surprisingly similar to the mask in Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907).

A Very English Affair: Vogue’s Hamish Bowles Attends a Summer Opera Festival in Glyndebourne, Hamish Bowles, Vogue, June 2017

[...] His dynamic pieces morph iconic sculptures by such masters as Michelangelo, Rodin, and Brancusi (in a technique that could only be possible with the benefit of contemporary technology) so that as you walk around them, familiar silhouettes fall into view only to melt into others as you complete the circle. Seeming to sprout from the bulrushes fringing a pond, standing proud among the sheep and lambs, or set on plinths in a wood-paneled gallery like traditional portrait busts, the works were a happy complement to the operatic experience that Vick had conceived—the energy of the present reverberating in the storied wonder of this exceptional place.
