April Gornik's subject matter is the light and colors of the landscape. An especially talented draftsperson, Gornik is able to give her images vibrant luminosity through careful and precise rendering. Never literal, the landscapes she creates are imagined and emotional spaces. With their mid-air perspectives and unpopulated expanses, they invite intimate, private contemplation.Gornik's work is featured in many public and private collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The National Museum of American Art in Washington, DC and The National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC, among others. She has shown extensively, in solo and group shows, in the United States and abroad.
