April Gornik has quietly been practicing her art for many years, never distracted by trends or politico-social climes. She just creates landscapes of extraordinary simplicity and beauty. Whether focusing on a single tree or a glance at a minute detail of nature or a panoramic view of the vastness of landscape that begins and ends only where the eye dictates, Gornik intuitively understands the grand life cycle and the secrets and miracles of the land. She is an enormously accomplished artist. For more than twenty years, April Gornik's ethereal landscapes have combined a devotion to light with the intellectual curiosity to explore and the skill to portray them. Influenced by predecessors both in America and abroad, from the Luminists to Vermeer, Gornik's canvases - panoramic, majestic, richly coloured - convey what critic Donald Kuspit calls, "an original, fresh experience of nature," and what Gornik herself calls "an aesthetic fiction" creating a constructed view of nature addressing the philosophical and aesthetic needs of our time.
