Ana Maria Hernando
Ana Maria Hernando makes paintings, drawings and prints with a layering of natural and formal elements. Designs taken from the mantillas and mantones worn for church and the festivities of her Spanish background are blended with images of plants and insects. Hernando says these are “reminders of the playfulness of sensuality and spirituality, the fullness and the sparseness, the rules and the inspirations.”
Ana Maria Hernando has shown her work in Argentina and the United States.
In 2005, she was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, in Colorado. In 2009 she created an installation made from colorful Peruvian hand-crocheted petticoats for the Projects Gallery at MCA Denver. She participated in the Denver Biennial 2010 with two installations within the “Liberadores/Liberators” exhibition at the Museo de las Americas, Denver.
Her work is in private and corporate collections, including The Tweed Museum of Art, Duluth; MN, Fidelity Investments, Boston, MA; Hallmark Corporation, Kansas City, MO; University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI and the Fundacion Banco Patricios, in Buenos Aires.
