OPENING RECEPTION: 5:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M. MARCH 20, 2009 (catalogue available)
GALLERIES MAURICE STERNBERG (EST. 1945), CHICAGO, IL
The East Hampton Star (Newspaper):

Published: October 14, 2008
From Staff and Wire Reports

“Ian Hornak: A Retrospective,” the largest exhibit of Mr. Hornak’s work since his death in 2002, will be launched in May 2009 at
the Galleries Maurice Sternberg in Chicago.

Mr. Hornak, who lived and worked part time in East Hampton, was regarded as one of the pre-eminent representational painters
of his generation. In the 1960s, Mr. Hornak lived in New York City and met Robert Motherwell, Willem de Kooning, Fairfield
Porter, and Lowell Nesbitt, a realist whose studio Mr. Hornak sublet in 1968.

He had his first solo show at the Tibor de Nagy Gallery in 1971. The Chicago retrospective will comprise more than 30 paintings
and drawings completed between 1968 and 2002, including his surreal figurative paintings and the conceptual multiple-exposure
landscape paintings that earned him recognition.

Mr. Hornak died on Dec. 9, 2002, of complications resulting from an aortic aneurysm he had while working in his East Hampton
studio. He was 58. His last solo exhibit was held that year at the Katharina Rich Perlow Gallery in New York City. His works are
in the permanent collections at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the
Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American Art.

The exhibit will be on view through July 2009.

CHICAGO TRIBUNE:


Alan Artner's Gallery Roundup: Ian Hornak Creates a Land of Myth

By Alan G. Artner
April 17, 2009

Ian Hornak: The paintings in this mini-retrospective at Galleries Maurice Sternberg are mostly landscapes and still lifes in which
hot color is allied with tight, hyper-realist rendering. Transcription is not the aim. Hornak, who died at 58 in 2002, was after a
splashy intensity more the province of Romantics and Symbolists of an earlier age.

The works showing this best are landscapes that depict dawn and dusk at once while referring to mythological figures such as
Persephone, the queen of the underworld, and Hephaestus, the god of fire. But certain still lifes, set into landscapes, reach toward
a heightened atmosphere as well, sometimes extending it onto frames elaborately painted by the artist.

The lone figure again refers to an otherworldly being, Asmodeus, the demon of lust. Hornak depicts him partially nude, in bright
light, with arms outstretched like a martyr, asleep. Textures of cloth and rock have been attended to as carefully as the torso, and
the painting's wide surround has painted rays that vibrate like emanations. But it is a chilly picture, with none of the over-the-top
sensuousness of his still lifes. Strange that the heated grandiosity that is otherwise so much in evidence should not be here.

**1/2 At 875 N. Michigan Ave. Suite 2520,through April 30. 312-642-1700.
