Erick Alejandro Hernández: Excerpts from a Shared Horizon. Yossi Milo Gallery. NYC






Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to announce Excerpts from a Shared Horizon, a selection of recent paintings by Erick Alejandro Hernández. The exhibition will be presented in the gallery’s viewing room through Friday, August 20.

The works in Excerpts all take place at a shift between night and day, at the banks of the Tiber or in a tropical wilderness. Caught within the red glow of this ambiguous dawn-or-dusk, Hernández’s figures are enveloped by rings of yellow paint and submerged within green and purple shadows. Across the works, these lions and dreamers collectively lose themselves to individual moments of contemplation. What emerges is a subtle system of motifs and signs, within which Hernández explores painting as a psychological borderland between personal history and collective experience. 

Erick Alejandro Hernández received his BFA in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and is currently completing his MFA from Yale University. Previous exhibitions include group shows at Harper’s Books, East Hampton, NY; Rubber Factory, New York, NY; and Vox Populi, Philadelphia, PA. Hernández was most recently awarded residencies and awards from the MacDowell Colony, Peterborough, NH; Corporation of Yaddo, Saratoga Springs, NY; Fountainhead, Miami, FL; Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program, Brooklyn, NY; Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Madison, ME; and Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation, Montreal, Canada.
