Until August 20, the Cabañas Museum hosts the exhibition “Traspasar un jardín” (Tangled Eden) which consists of about 20 paintings made in oil on canvas as well as several wooden and metal structures.
The artist shared that the idea is that visitors can enter the structures and see the paintings from there.
“The paintings were made in oil on canvas, and as for the structures I used wood, oil, acrylic and metal. The idea is to experiment with space and layers of paint, to get out of the two-dimensional space and go beyond the space of the painting itself. The shapes in which the structures are made are very similar to the ones I work with I’m looking for sweeps, elongations and other effects with all this build-up of layers that comes from looking at the works from the structures. I’m trying to embody the three-dimensional drawing in space, from a more architectural context. Another feature of this series is that it’s pieces that resulted from work on Images taken from Google Hearth,” Hernandez said.
“It’s the first time I’m working in 3D. What I want is for the viewer to be able to walk in and look for their own composition of the images,” he added.
Hernandez has devoted his interest to the visual arts since 2000; He has shown his work individually and in groups in various cities in Mexico, the United States and Italy. More information on the site https://museocabanas.jalisco.gob.mx/es/.
