Secundino Hernández talks to Something Curated about his exhibition Paso at Victoria Miro

Something Curated: Broadly speaking, could you tell us a bit about your practice? Would you say there is a narrative that connects the various paintings in this exhibition?

 

Secundino Hernández: This is my second solo show here in London, and I wanted to continue to introduce people to my practice. So at Wharf Road, on the ground floor you’ll find three paintings based around the primary colours and a black and white palette, which are more my signature works that people can easily recognise. And then these are combined with something I’ve been working on for the last year – a new series of monochrome paintings, which I’m showing in combination with a largescale, colourful palette work. I felt it was the perfect opportunity to show my new, figurative works in Mayfair, because it’s a completely different, more intimate space. For me, the goal was to have a show in three different spaces, each with their own character, that speak about different aspects of my practice.

 

SC: How did you get into this field?

SH: I studied fine arts in Madrid and finished my studies in Milan. I studied art because I thought it was the only thing I was able to do. I decided to be a painter and live through painting, which made it easier to follow the flow. I can’t necessarily control what’s happening to me, but I can control what’s happening in the studio in front of the canvas.
