Visit the Outsider Art Fair, New York this January to enjoy a collection of works created by the self-taught artist Gregory Horndeski. Working in an expressionistic style, Horndeski primarily uses acrylic paint and moves the paint while it is still wet to create unique and intricate images.

Born in 1948, Horndeski holds a B.S. in Physics, as well as a Master’s and Ph.D. in Applied Math. He began painting in 1981, and his work has been exhibited throughout North America and Europe, in galleries and museums including the Groninger Museum in Holland and The National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution. His works can be found in the permanent collections of universities and museums as well as the corporate collections of the Dallas Morning News, Home Box Office, and GTE Corporate Headquarters.

Gregory Horndeski is a self-taught painter with gifts in mathematics as well as art. Horndeski got frustrated with the fast drying times of acrylic paint and began mixing more water in to slow the process. This led to his signature style of painting by pouring the paint onto a horizontal canvas and moving the paint around while it is still wet. He uses this technique to create expressive and intricate images, his mathematically trained mind creating tiny details hidden in the swirls of expressive painting. The works sometimes open up and are interactive. They often contain personal stories, mathematical theorems, and musical notation written around the frames. 

Gregory Horndeski’s work has been exhibited throughout North America and Europe, in galleries and museums including the Groninger Museum in Holland and The National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution. His works can be found in the permanent collections of universities and museums such as the Houston Museum of Fine Art, Houston, TX, the Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, TX, the University of New Mexico at Las Cruces and the Groninger Museum, Groningen, Holland.
