Albano Hernández’s work explores the problems of the image in contemporary society, focusing on the pictorial process, its elements and the temporal dimension to backbone his reflections. In his drawings, paintings and sculptures we find fields of color, palettes, grids, checkerboards, fit crosses, color charts, notes or measurements that leave abandon the shade shadow of the canvas to become the main subject of the work. Everything and nothing is a journey between color and reason, a chromatic explosion that refuses to be ordered put in order and measured by man.
