Montreal artist Jennifer Hornyak is known for her vivid colours and richly textured oil paintings. This piece sets a bunch of pink flowers in a blue vase against a sunny yellow and turquoise background. Gorgeous! Hornyak’s inspired colour palette and abstracted form are reminiscent of both the Flauvist artists such as Matisse and the German Expressionists.
“I don’t want to do flowers--flowers. As I always say, God does those!” Jennifer Hornyak
She studied at the Grimsby School of Art in England. In 1961, she moved to Montreal where she attended McGill University, the Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal and the Centre Saidye Bronfman.
