Art Madrid'24 – Jorge Hernández

Jorge Hernández

Huelva, 1973

Jorge Hernandez's paintings depict scenes inspired by pop art and classic Hollywood with great compositional talent and a clear narrative intent. Characters decked out in vintage costumes populate vast landscapes and modern architectures wrapped in an air of mystery reminiscent of film noir and directors like Hitchcock and Kubrick. Hernandez's ability to confront decontextualized elements with the use of established canons leads the viewer to imagine an entire story within the frozen moment he or she is contemplating. The use of a glossy resin to cover the paint gives the final painting a timeless, slow-moving, almost dreamlike appearance. His most recent series is characterized by the use of monochrome backgrounds in which the artist gives prominence to his pigments and resins, and introduces a single of his recognizable figures submerged in the center as a diver but, in his usual game of contrasts and similarities, the googles the character is wearing are for virtual reality.
