About Lime Green with Coral

A joyful tapestry of colour greets the viewer’s eye in this oil painting by Jennifer Hornyak. Her series of lovely floral still life’s re-imagine the form and colour palette of traditional works. This piece—in coral, greens, purples, yellows, and blues is a celebration of colour. Hornyak’s abstracted form and lavish brush strokes are thoroughly modern and intended to suggest the flower as a metaphor.

“I don’t want to do flowers. Flowers, as I always say, God does those!” Jennifer Hornyak
