"When I first started painting landscapes, I made a lot of paintings from dreams. I never even considered using photographs — I thought that was cheating! And then I was touring around the American Southwest with a camera. Looking at that landscape, I realized that it is more amazing and surreal and astonishing than anything that I could dream or make up, so I decided I'd start to use photographs. I soon realized that the photographs didn't have enough information for me to copy them exactly, and the more I worked with them, the more I realized that I could trust myself to interfere with my starting points in a positive, creative way." —April Gornik

April Gornik has been a seminal member of New York's thriving art scene since the late 1970s. Dominated by sky and devoid of people, Gornik's dramatic landscapes— luminously lit and eerie—demand a powerful emotional response. Stylistically mature and graceful, Gornik's work reflects an artist confident with her talent, channeling an assuredness that is manifested in her breathtaking panoramas.

In 2003, she was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from Guild Hall Museum, and she was the Neuberger Museum of Art Annual Honoree in 2004. In 2006, Hudson Hills Press and the Neuberger Museum published a monograph of her meditative paintings, drawings, and photographs, co-written by art historian Donald Kuspit.Read Less
