Ana Maria Hernando
Originally from Argentina and now based in Boulder, Ana Maria Hernando is recognized for her innovative approaches to the dynamics of cultural/gender relations. She attended the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredon, Buenos Aries, Argentina, School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and The California College of Arts and Crafts, Oakland, CA. She has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art Kansas City, International Center of Bethlehem, Bethlehem, West Bank Palestine, Oklahoma Contemporary, Oklahoma City, Marfa Contemporary, Marfa, Texas, Denver Botanic Gardens, Denver, CO and numerous group exhibitions including the Museo de Las Americas Biennial of the Americas "Liberadores/Liberators," among others. She received grants from Colorado and the NEA, the Boulder Arts Commission, a BCAA Neodata Visual Artist Fellowship Award and a residency at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. Ana Maria Hernando is represented by Robischon Gallery, Denver, Colorado.
As her website notes, Hernando "considers the balance between the material and the transcendent. Through women's rich histories, their daily lives and their relationship to hand-worked textiles and utilitarian objects, [she] devotedly explores the sacred feminine. Her encompassing vision embraces women's skills and their handiwork and dares to question how these women and their hand-crafted wares hold their place in the world."
You can see wonderful examples of her new work at the CU Art Museum through October 22. The exhibition is titled We Have Flowers and "contemplates the duality of the nocturnal life of flowers and their daytime existence. The exhibition expands upon Hernando’s repeated use of flower and circle imagery in her performances, poetry, drawings, collages, sculptures and large-scale installations." The CU Art Museum is located on CU Boulder's campus in the Visual Arts Complex at 1085 18th St. The museum
is open 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and until 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
