Jennifer Hornyak Art

Canadian, b. 1940

Jennifer Hornyak (Jennifer Lynne Hampton) was born in Grimsby, England. From 1956 to 1959, she attended the Grimsby School of Art. In 1961 she immigrated to Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She continued her art studies at McGill University, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and at the Saidye Bronfman Centre where she first exhibited her paintings of Montreal scenes and personalities. Hornyak's first solo exhibitions were held in 1984 and 1985 at Galerie Claude Lafitte (Montreal). Praised by art reviewer André Martin for her gift of "anecdote",[1] Hornyak then participated in a group show at Place des Arts (Montreal) and held a solo exhibition at Nancy Poole's Studio (Toronto).

In 1987, Hornyak was the sole Canadian to participate at the Paris World Exhibition at the invitation of her patron, Baroness Marie-Hélène de Rothschild.[2][3] Exhibiting her paintings alongside those by Pablo Picasso, Amedeo Modigliani, and Kees van Dongen, increased recognition led to her participation in Feminissima at Galerie Artcurial (Paris) as the sole Canadian among artists from 35 countries,[4] and at the Palais des Expositions (Nice).[5] The following year she exhibited at Donna Heuhhoff Gallery (Dallas), at Sandra Werther Fine Art (New York) in 1989, and held a solo show at Eleonore Austerer Gallery, San Francisco in 1991. Throughout this period, she honed her technique at the Vermont Studio Colony with Stanley Boxer, George McLean and Elmer Bischoff and with Elizabeth Lyons in Tuscany, Italy.[6]

By 1991, Hornyak's work had been reviewed in the prestigious journals ARTnews, Art Auction, Art in America, Beaux-Arts (France) and Mizue (China),[4] but continued to evolve. Increasingly introspective, in 1994 art reviewer Bernard Théoret noted that her "'appeal to the unconscious was impressionistic like an invitation to the garden of the soul".[7] Flowers soon became her symbol of "universality" and dominant subject.[8] Influenced by the graphic still lifes of Giorgio Morandi,[8] her signature style, of "semi-figurative, almost abstract, works... built up through a complex technique of richly coloured glazes", was evident by 2003.[9][10]

Since 2003 Hornyak has held over ten solo exhibitions in cities such as Ottawa[11] and Halifax.[12] A participant in many group shows,[13] her paintings are exhibited alongside work by Jim Dine, Chuck Close, and Tom Hopkins in Montreal,[14] and at Miami Art Basel, the Chicago Contemporary and Classic, and Toronto International Art Fair. In 2013, Hornyak exhibited across Canada at Wallace Galleries (Calgary), Trias Gallery (Toronto), Oeno Gallery (Kingston), Galerie St-Laurent + Hill (Ottawa), Galerie de Bellefeuille (Montreal), Studio 21 (Halifax) and Trinity Gallery (Saint John). In April 2015 her first solo exhibition of figurative works in over twenty-years, The Figure Revisited at the Visual Arts Centre (Montreal), was included in the "Must-Sees" column in Canadian Art.
