Alejandra Hernández

Posted by Fabio 26 January 2018

Alejandra Hernández works on painting and drawing mainly, which are combined in lively installations, sometimes working on site specific projects and others as more classical displays which are influenced by experiences of daily life, film, art history, comic, cinema, mythology, internet influx and people she has met. Live portraits are a central focus on her practice as a way to create intersections between people and having an intimate experience where the final image is a result of a mental, physical and material collaboration between artist and sitter. Overall the outcome is a combination of images and symbols that play between reality and fantasy, portrayed in moments where ambiguity is always present.
