HERNANDEZ



MARIA LUISA HERNANDEZ FUEGO Y AGUA



Maria Luisa Hernandez is a Chilean-born painter who has made London her home after a long fascination with the Thames, Cornwall and the colours, light and 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 Foreign Ministry, she found herself en route to London. She is instinctively a nature lover after being exposed to painting outdoors by her father. She 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 Obser ver and Le Cour voisier. She has showcased her work across the globe. Today she lives and paints in her London home on the park and her seaside studio on the English Coast. Maria Luisa Hernandez has been represented by Cadogan Contemporar y since 2010 and since then she has had a number of very acclaimed and successful shows. She is collected worldwide by international collectors, celebrities and corporations. Freddie Burness Director



MARIA LUISA HERNANDEZ FIRE AND WATER According to Aristotelian belief, the four elements, earth, air, water and fire made up all matter, both in human life and in the universe. If they were balanced there was harmony, if not chaos could ensue. In these atmospheric paintings Maria Luisa Hernandez reveals a unique gift for capturing the many moods of the ocean. She conveys with skilful brush strokes the movements of the waves and the tides, the winds and the currents, which can also clash in a tumultuous, cataclysmic motion. Sometimes this is nature captured on canvas at its most chaotic, wild, untrammelled forces are at work when air and water are opposed, as we see in the ferocious tempests portrayed in some of her works. There is also fire where her mastery of light and colour creates a glorious glow, inspired by Turner. She was fascinated by the sea as a child when her affinity for the environment began. She sees her work as both spiritual and mystical, and she invites others to share her vision which has an emotional connection with nature and with landscape. If earth appears, it is on the peripher y because her paintings reflect the fact that most of the area of the world is dominated by water. The way she conveys the miracle of creation is truly remarkable. The scale of her canvasses is appropriately large and it is awesome to see so many memorable moods of the natural world captured on them with such passion and beauty.
