The Jennifer Lauren Gallery is thrilled to be showing a body of work by Spanish self-taught artist Miguel Ángel Hernando. For over thirty years he has been honing his practice at two supported studios culminating in this, his first solo showcase. Hernando’s work was submitted for selection for my first online exhibition Art | Unlocked | Unearthed earlier this year. I was immediately drawn to a very dense work, with shiny gold gel pen markings bringing the work to life. This work, of course, sold very quickly and, after contacting the studio, I received a new body of work created by Hernando over the last seven years.

You can visit the Hybrid Creatures exhibition here.

Without language, Hernando creates his own individualised figures and animals, adding more detail such as smaller animals within animals, raising a smile. The photographs, whilst revealing fantastic artwork, do not do justice to the colours and effects his use of pens creates. If you wish to purchase any of the works in the HYBRID CREATURES online exhibition, you will not be disappointed in their beauty.

Online you will find a BSL interpretation of the text, an audio version of the text and a downloadable PDF booklet created by Molly Davies. There will soon be an audio described version of Jennifer's favourite work in the exhibition too.

Jennifer will be in conversation with Miguel's studio over zoom for you to hear more about the Debajo del Sombrero supported studio in Spain, how they operate and the artists they support. This talk will take place on Monday 30 November at 6:30pm GMT. To book your place via eventbrite, please follow this LINK. A zoom link will be sent before the event. BSL interpretation and live captioning (via otter.ai) will be provided.
