About the Work
Born in England, Jennifer Hornyak moved to Canada in 1961, and she now has a vigorous studio practice in Montreal. Her figurative compositions have a structured formalism that is at odds with their intimacy. Skillfully built up through a complex technique of rich green, blue, yellow, red, pink and white glazes, Hornyak is often described as a painter's painter. Hornyak was invited to participate in the World Exhibition in Paris in 1987 along with Modigliani, Picasso and van Dongen. Her work has been exhibited throughout Europe and North America.
