  • About the work

This lovely oil painting of flowers by British artist Jennifer Hornyak in soft pinks and pale blues, highlighted by green foliage is set against a deep purple and sea-green background. Pimpernels are classic flowers from the primrose family often found in English gardens. Known for her abstract and figurative work in vivid colours, Hornyak is inspired by both German Expressionism and the early 20th century French Fauvist masters such as Matisse whose style of painting used colour in non-naturalistic ways. She achieves such rich textures by applying layer upon layer of glaze. “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. Hornyak has exhibited throughout North America and Europe including the Paris World Exhibition in 1987 where her work was shown alongside that of Modigliani, Picasso and van Dongen. Hornyak’s work is represented in many private and corporate collections.
