Contemporary Painting, sculpture
(Klamath Falls, OR, 1981 - )
Ana Hernandez is a New Orleans based painter and sculptor. In her work, she assembles codes of communication using signs, symbols, and text; language is transformed into a visual vocabulary that emotionally probes the climate of our natural, built, and social environments. A founding member of Level Artist Collective in New Orleans, Hernandez has exhibited widely in the US, including the Schuylkill Center in Philadelphia, the New Orleans Museum of Art, Ulrich Museum of Art in Kansas, and the Mexican Cultural Institute in New Orleans, among other art spaces. Her work has also been recognized by residencies at the Crystal Bridges Museum, the Joan Mitchell Center and Tulane’s A Studio in the Woods.
