About the Work

In expressive brushwork, flowers of mauve and yellow with a single large pink rose in a tall vase are framed by deep forest green that vibrates on a ground of tuscan yellow. Pink petals and turquoise taches on the table complete the perfectly square still life with its flattened picture plane. Hornyak's work is 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. Born in England, Hornyak 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 private and corporate collections.
