MORE IMAGES FROM THIS SHOW

A resident of Suffolk County, Long Island, April Gornik can be firmly situated in the distinguished American landscape tradition. Devoid of people, her paintings portray the majesty and allure of nature but in a carefully composed manner that draws on diverse sources of inspiration, including photographs. The result is surreal, transcendental and sublime. Light plays a powerful role in her paintings, creating a sense of mystery, whether it is sunlight or moonlight. In a statement about her work, she says that she likes her work to be intuitive, open to interpretation and beautiful. This exhibition will feature approximately thirteen of her large-scale paintings.

April Gornik's work can be found in the collections of the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, the Brooklyn Museum, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Jewish Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. She is represented by the Danese Gallery in New York.
