PRESS RELEASE AGORA GALLERY, Chelsea NY /
Collective Exhibition COLOR IMMERSION / 2009:
Since leaving her place of birth, Colombian painter Virginia Hernandez's love for her country has only grown, amplified by her training and experiences in France. Now living and working on the Côte d'Azur, Hernandez has found qualities of light and color that recall the vibrant landscapes of her youth. In paintings that oscillate between abstraction and pointillism, she crafts scenes, still lives and landscapes by applying oils with spatulas. The resulting squares of paint provide the basic building blocks of her practice, sometimes representing figures, elsewhere creating a mosaic background for more rounded shapes to play across.
Working with this basic square shape, Hernandez favors bold, warm and spectacular colors. By restricting her palette to only a few dramatic tones in each work, she creates incredibly dynamic and striking compositions that thrive on fluid patterns of energy. Neon greens, shimmering pinks, deep blues and strong oranges function alternately as abstract subjects and animated backdrops that make even her most poised still lives infectiously kinetic.
The Inca Empire (Quechua: Tawantinsuyu), also known as the Incan Empire, was the largest empire inpre-Columbian America. From 1438 to 1533, the Incas used methods including conquest and peaceful assimilation, to incorporate a large portion of western South America, centered on the Andean mountain ranges. At its largest, the empire joined Peru, larges parts of modern Ecuador, western and south central Bolivia, northwest Argentina, north and central Chile and a small part of southern Colombia into a state comparable to the historical empires of Eurasia
