Art Madrid'24 – Herminio
La Caridad, (Asturias), 1945
Herminio's restless mind is initially interested in mechanical research and, from there, he establishes a link between science and art, geometry and space, materials and gravity. The main element of his production is the distinctive use of magnets, which keeps his works suspended in space in sculptural installations that exude magic and fascination. Herminio experiments with a variety of materials such as the wood of different textures, glass, methacrylate or aluminium to create, from delicate small-format compositions to large public sculptures. With a palette almost completely reduced to black, white and red, Herminio's pieces generate their own habitat and a magnetic atmosphere of minimalist, suprematist and kinetic world influences.
