"My idea of a perfect surrealist painting is one in
which every detail is perfectly realistic, yet filled
with a surrealistic, dreamlike mood. And the
viewer himself can't understand why that mood
exists, because there are no dripping watches
or grotesque shapes as reference points. That
is what I'm after: that mood which is apart from
everyday life, the type of mood that one
experiences at very special moments."

-Ian Hornak, The 57th Street Review, January 1976

"While I know that the beautiful, the spiritual and
the sublime are today suspect I have begun to
stop resisting the constant urge to deny that
beauty has a valid right to exist in
contemporary art."

-Ian Hornak, Cover Magazine 1994
