About the Artist

Secundino Hernández's diverse and energetic painting practice resists easy characterisation. His work features intricately structured compositions that mix strong linear elements and rich bursts of colour. Some canvases feature abstracted, atomised forms, while others have more densely overlaid imagery in which it is possible to discern figurative elements.

In Focus

Secundino Hernández discusses his exhibition, Paso

In conversation with Martin Coomer, the artist discusses the three bodies of work featured in his exhibition, Paso, at Victoria Miro and Victoria Miro Mayfair (1 April - 6 May 2017).

 

Martin Coomer: Standing in front of your new monochrome ‘washed’ paintings, I’m struck by how they seem to be about erasure as much as addition.

Secundino Hernández: That is the primary idea. Normally, we say that painting is about addition, but with these works I’m going through the painting, and through the prepared ground, to the raw canvas. I’m taking a step back, if you like, moving out of the image. 

 

MC: They have a dramatic, exploratory quality but also a distinct urban feel, like being surrounded by weathered walls. 

SH: Yes, I think it’s partly due to the scale of the work. With this size of canvas, you have a sense of architectural scale. Being surrounded by them, it’s almost like you’re in a street. 

When the works succeed I don’t see geometric shapes any more. I see a dance between pictorial languages.
