”HOPE IS THE BRIDGE WE BUILD BETWEEN FEAR AND FREEDOM”


MARIA LUISA HERNANDEZ


Cadogan Contemporary is delighted to present “HOPE”, the new collection of emotive, reflective and luminous paintings by Maria Luisa Hernández.

Maria is a Chilean-born painter who has made London her home after a long fascination with the Thames and the magic of old and new London.

She studied an MA in Fine Arts at the University of Chile and after being awarded a scholarship from the Chilean Ministry of Foreign Affairs, found herself en route

to London where she has lived since 2000. She is instinctively a nature lover and is

often found sketching and painting waves in remote areas of the United Kingdom. Maria expresses her art vividly and passionately as is witnessed by her explosive waves and vibrant sunsets. She has been nominated as one of the Future 500 rising stars by The Observer and Le Courvoisier and has showcased her work

across the globe. Today she lives and paints in her urban London home and her seaside studio on the English coast.

Maria Luisa Hernández has been represented by Cadogan Contemporary since

2010 and since then has had a number of acclaimed and successful shows. She is collected worldwide by international collectors, celebrities and corporations. Freddie Burness Director

“Capturing the light is the essence of my work. It is always the light which catches my attention. That is my passion. Light is visible and invisible. It is the seasoning, the flavour, the fragrance and the music of a picture. The painting is built in an organic process of layers, slowly evolving until it comes to life. To a life without end. Without light nothing exists. Light is energy, light is love. A memorable painting does not belong to any collector, or even the wall it hangs upon, but to those who see it. Everytime I paint, I become another…”
