April Gornik: Prints & Monoprints
September 10, 2015 - October 10, 2015
32 East 57th Street

Pace Prints is pleased to present an exhibition of prints and monoprints by April Gornik at its 32 East 57th Street gallery, on view September 10–October 10, 2015. The exhibition will chronicle her collaborations with the Pace Editions Workshop over the past two decades at will feature her newest edition, Desert Light.

April Gornik created Desert Light using soft ground etching, aquatint and spitbite aquatint to depict the radiant shearing light of an expansive desert landscape. Employing three plates with six colors, the artist recreates the weight and richness of the environment she encountered during her travels to Namibia.

The painterly effects of the foreground were achieved using spit-bite aquatint. Aquatint and soft ground etching techniques were chosen to articulate the dunes' cascading shadows. Contrasting tones and gradations lend a mystical quality to the print and reflects the artist's astute perception of color and light’s ability to evoke emotion.

April Gornik was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1953. She received a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Nova Scotia, Canada in 1976 and moved to New York City to live and work two years later. Gornik’s work appears in major public and private collections including Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; the Museum of Modern Art, NY; the National Museum of American Art, Washington, DC; and the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington among others. Her work was featured in the "Paradise Lost; Paradise Regained" at the American Pavilion of the 1984 Venice Biennale and the 1989 Whitney Biennial.
