“Not since the Hudson River School glorified the grandiose panorama of the natural world in meticulous detail has
an American artist embraced landscape painting with the artistic totality of Ian Hornak.” - Marcia Corbino, “Hornak
Exhibit: Landscapes At Their Best,”
Sarasota Herald Tribune, March 7, 1980.

“He [Ian Hornak] is right at the top of the list of romantically descriptive painters today.” - John Canaday,
New York Times, January 12, 1974

“Given his creative guidelines, Hornak has admirably succeeded in producing an imagery at once visionary and
hauntingly intimate. It is personal painting that colors memory, and stays fixed in the mind.” - John Gruen,
“Ian Hornak’s Personal Painting,”
Arts Magazine, February 1976

“Odds are 10,000 to one against a young artist surviving in New York on painting alone. But former Detroiter Ian
Hornak has been doing so… More then surviving, this painter who just turned 30 has been living comfortably in a
studio apartment on 73rd Street and in a weekend home on Long Island. Collectors wait in line for Hornak’s
landscape paintings since his third one man show sold out at New York’s Tibor de Nagy Gallery.” - Joy Hakanson,
“He’s one in 1,000,000”
Detroit News, June 2, 1974

“The exotic landscapes he began to paint were evocations of a world partly inside the mind but also with a very real
existence outside related to color photography and modern industrial life. I was deeply interested in the implications
of these paintings.” - Frederick J. Cummings, Director,
Detroit Institute of Arts, May 1974
(circulated catalogue, “Ian Hornak: New Paintings and Drawings)

“Successive viewings of Hornak’s paintings make one sense that the artist takes great risks and that the risks are
often successful… Without risks there is neither art nor achievement. Hornak’s recent paintings are both.” -John L.
Hochmann,
Arts Magazine, February 1978

"Hornak's is a rather self-explanatory if not wholly tautological postmodernism. Perhaps, though, his excesses ring
true for the approaching millennium: this is "end-time" painting that exercises its romantic license to the fullest in its
presentation of multiple styles of the last fin de siecle - naturalist, symbolist, allegorical, apocalyptic." -Gerrit Henry,
Art in America, July 1994
