Painter Ann Hornback incorporates dreamlike, surrealistic scenes of nature and animals, usually with a central female figure, into her work.
For more than four decades, Kentucky native Ann Hornback has lived and worked in her adopted city of New Orleans. Hornback was a member of the circle of artists who coalesced around the nascent contemporary arts gallery scene in the early 1970s, where she achieved numerous solo exhibitions, including showings at the Contemporary Art Center in its early years. Her work is representative of New Orleans Visionary Imagist painters, in that she incorporates dreamlike, surrealistic scenes of nature and animals, usually with a central female figure, whom Hornback self-describes as embodying autobiographical emotional and historic content.
