BOOKS & DVD
Hudson Hills Press, in conjunction with the Neuberger Museum of Art, has published a monograph on my work,
also serving as a catalogue for a mid-career survey which started at the Neuberger Museum of Art
in Purchase, NY, in 2004 and ended at the Allen Memorial Art Museum in Oberlin, OH, in June 2006.
The book features approximately 140 full-color plates of paintings and drawings, from 1980 to the present.
It includes an essay by Donald Kuspit and an interview with Dede Young, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Neuberger.
Unfortunately, it is now sold out, but used copies may be found online.
Besides the regular publication, a deluxe limited edition of 75 copies was produced that included the etching Sky in Trees,
shown below. It is presented in a special boxed set. Information about ordering it can be found here,
or Kate Pentkowski, at Danese Gallery, can be contacted directly at 212-223-2227 or by emailing email@example.com

April Gornik: Landscapes (c) 2008
running time: 28 minutes
Description: April Gornik paints evocative landscapes with roots in minimalism
as well as the conceptual avant garde of the 70's.
Her haunted imagery is based on photographs that she manipulates to make highly personal work
filled withsensual, sexual and metaphorical overtones. Gornik's intuitive relationship to nature
offers a fresh look at the landscape that seems ever threatened, distant and disappearing.
Seen on this program are two exhibitions at the Edward Thorp Gallery in New York
and a mid-career retrospective at the Neuberger Museum.
Interviews are with critic/art historian Donald Kuspit, art dealer Renato Danese,
curator Dede Young and April Gornik in her New York City studio.
