Everyday life in Juan Hernandez’s native Tegucigalpa, Honduras is the inspiration for his series of paintings and linocuts. “Tierra y Memoria” will be featured at The Art League Gallery October 4 – November 5, 2012.
Hernandez paints what he knows and what he’s lived. His straightforward compositions, bold lines, texture, and defined shapes effectively capture the emotion of the people he portrays. He most often depicts people working on the streets performing humble, day-to-day, low-income jobs.
“My goal is not so much to make a representation of these scenes and their protagonists, but to express something about their human condition and the nature of their lives. These pieces are filled with my deep feelings for these people who are part of a country that faces many social, economic, and political challenges.”
Event begins at 10:00AM
