Acrylic and resin on board

Hernández’s paintings portray iconic scenes inspired by pop art and classic Hollywood. Characters in 60s, 70s and 80s fashion populate vast landscapes and modern architectures wrapped in an air of mystery reminiscent of cinema noir and directors like Hitchcock and Kubrick. Through his talent for confronting decontextualized elements within his acrylic paintings with the use of established storytelling conventions and his sense of composition, strongly marked by a narrative purpose, his paintings come alive in the audience’s imagination. The use of a glossy resin to cover the artwork gives the final painting a timeless and almost dreamlike appearance, that furthers its connection to the silver screen.
