Ian Hornak Quotes

Quotes by Ian Hornak - (4 quotes)

Ian Hornak - From the Beauty category:

While I know that the beautiful, the spiritual and the sublime are today suspect, I have begun to stop resisting the constant urge to deny that beauty has a valid right to exist in contemporary art. (Ian Hornak)

Ian Hornak - From the Composition category:

When I paint a landscape, I get the greatest pleasure out of composing it. As I paint, I try to work out a visual sonata form or a fugue, with realistic images. (Ian Hornak)

Ian Hornak - From the Masters category:

What I so like about Poussin and Cezanne is their sense of organization. I like the way in which they develop space and shape in architectural continuity - the rhythm across their paintings. (Ian Hornak)

Ian Hornak - From the Surrealism category:

My idea of a perfect surrealist painting is one in which every detail is perfectly realistic, yet filled with a surrealistic, dreamlike mood. And the viewer himself can't understand why that mood exists, because there are no dripping watches or grotesque shapes as reference points. That is what I'm after: that mood which is apart from everyday life, the type of mood that one experiences at very special moments. (Ian Hornak)
