Painterly passages of light and dark blue, moss green and ochre with strips of paper collage create an unfolding still life of flowers and table cloth across two panels in this oil dyptich on canvas. The picture plane of this layered, horizontal composition tilts and flattens slightly enhancing the overall abstract direction of the painting. Hornyak's paintings are inspired by modern French Fauvist masters such as Henri Matisse and Andre Derain. Dubbed "fauve" or wild beast by the media, these early 20th century painters were known for their vivid even potent colors and energetic brushwork. Jennifer Hornyak was born in England where she studied at the Grimsby School of Art before coming to Canada. In Canada, she continued her studies at McGill University, the Musee des beaux-arts de Montreal and the Centre Saidye Bronfman. Hornyak's work is represented in many private and corporate collections. "We cannot reproduce nature, nor should we want to. All we can do is see and feel, and aim to transcend ourselves." JH
