“Paint, for artist Gregory Horndeski, reveals in his work a path toward light and space. The nuances of thickly applied, colorful paint, as it swirls around a canvas, capture the spirit of his oeuvre while leading Horndeski’s audience toward that inner place where
his angels and demons begin to reveal themselves……”

Catalogue for “Greg Horndeski, Works of Art from the Past Millennium,”at the
Tyler Museum of Art, Tyler, Tx,

Horndeski began painting in earnest in 1981, using oil paints and brushes.In 1982, he gave up the brush for painting knives, using a brush only for details.He changed from oils to acrylics in 1983, thereafter beginning the development of his unique, instantly recognizable, representational and expressionistic style of knife painting.
Greg’s work has always been very humanistic, with his main motivation being, in his own words, “to portray the absurd universe in which we exist.”This is similar to what motivated him as an applied mathematician.But, as a painter, he can “address issues of a non-mathematical nature, such as the greatest absurdity of all—death, and how we deal with it.” He hopes “to help people to have a greater appreciation of how incredible life and existence are, and never to forget that they only have a finite amount of time to enjoy it…..”
The work of Greg Horndeski has been shown in galleries throughout the world, including New York,Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.His work is in several museum collections, including Houston Museum of Fine Art and the Dallas Museum of Art.Pieces are also
among Corporate Collections, including the Belo Collection of the Dallas Morning News and GTE Corporate Headquarters, Las Colinas, Texas.
Greg Hordenski currently lives and paints in his studio in Sante Fe, New Mexico.
