Ian Hornak, 58, Whose Paintings Were Known for Hyper-Real Look

By KEN JOHNSON
Published: December 30, 2002

Ian Hornak, a representational painter who exhibited his work regularly in New York galleries during the
last three decades, died on Dec. 9 in Southampton, N.Y. He was 58.
The cause was an abdominal aneurysm, said his dealer, Katharina Rich Perlow.

Mr. Hornak came into his own as an artist when abstract painting seemed to have run its course and
many young artists were investigating new possibilities for representational painting. He became known
for elaborate, extremely detailed paintings of flowers, food and tableware that recall the 17th-century
Dutch vanitas tradition. At the same time, his pictures have a sharply focused hyper-real look that verges
on Surrealism and Photorealism. His frames, often bearing painted imagery or decoration, added layers
of meaning to his postmodernism word.

Mr. Hornak was born in Philadelphia on Jan. 9, 1944. When he was 8 he moved to Michigan, where his
parents ran a small farm. After two years at the University of Michigan, he transferred to Wayne State
University and earned bachelor's and master's degrees in fine arts, finishing in 1966. After a stint
teaching at Wayne State, Mr. Hornak moved to New York, where he met Willem de Kooning, Robert
Motherwell, Fairfield Porter and Lowell Nesbitt, a realist whose studio Mr. Hornak sublet in the summer
of 1968.

Mr. Hornak began exhibiting in 1972 at the Tibor de Nagy Gallery and moved to the Fischbach Gallery
in 1977. Since 1988 he had had seven solo shows at the Katharina Rich Perlow Gallery. Among the
institutions that own his work are the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, the Indianapolis Museum
of Art and the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American Art.

Mr. Hornak is survived by his sister, Rosemary Hornak, and his brother, Michael, both of Mount
Clemens, Mich.

Ian Hornak, 58; Painter Was Known for Photo-Realism Style

Published: December 20, 2002
From Staff and Wire Reports;

Ian Hornak, an American painter known for landscapes and still lifes rendered in the photo-realist
tradition, died Dec. 9 at a hospital in New York. He was 58. The cause of death was not disclosed.
Hornak, born in Philadelphia, received his art training at the University of Michigan and Wayne State
University. He moved to New York City in 1967, where he kept a studio for many years. He did most
of his painting at his home in East Hampton, N.Y. He had his first one-man show at the Tibor de Nagy
Gallery in New York in 1971 and soon caught the attention of prominent critics. John Canaday, writing
in the New York Times in 1974, said Hornak was "right at the top of the list of romantically descriptive
painters today." A draftsman from an early age, Hornak was fascinated by the Renaissance masters and
by photography. His work, exhibited mainly in New York galleries, has been described as evoking a
ghostly double-exposure effect.

“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.
Ian Hornak created and sold approximately 2,000 paintings and 4,500 drawings throughout
his career. The artworks on this website are presented for reference only and are owned by
private, corporate and public collections around the world.
