Biography

Jennifer Hornyak was born in England, where she studied at the Grimsby School of Art before coming to Canada. For more than forty years, her work has been exhibited in prestigious galleries across North America, at international art fairs, and in many corporate collections. She works and lives in Montreal.

Hornyak is known for her vivid and distinctly textured paintings that blur the line between figuration and abstraction. Drawing inspiration from her surroundings, she creates work that is both intimate and universal. Through both colour and texture, Hornyak builds a structure for each painting that emanates a still life motif.

“Regardless of my intentions, the final shape of each flowerpot is a direct reflection of my mood. The objects may be the same, but how I paint them entirely depends on how I feel about the world that day. ” She uses areas of pale and deep hues to build up a well-integrated negative space that surrounds her freely-rendered floral still life subjects. The spontaneous brushwork and undiluted colour are reminiscent of the Fauve group of painters of a century ago.

She lives and works in Montreal.
