Cadogan Contemporary is delighted to present the new exhibition by Chilean painter, Maria Luisa Hernandez, ‘Red Light’.
Familiar themes run through this collection, the power of the elements and human emotions brought on by the natural world. Hernandez straddles the fine line between landscape and abstraction. Turbulent ocean melts into infinite planes of colour.
With a new studio overlooking the Thames, water is an ever-present influence, whether it is a reflected sunset over calm waters or the memory of the crashing waves of the south Pacific in her native Chile. There is a wild juxtaposition between the calm serenity in some of the paintings and a blood-red passion in others.
