Jorge “ChuCho” Hernandez
Stepping in front of a blank canvas is what I equate to walking on a tightrope. At every stage of a painting I have to control my mind. I deflect my tension through application of oils: texture and color lend balance so I don’t fall.
Painting, the physical act, at some point becomes my way of meditating. I lay down an original idea or thought and use the medium to bring that idea to life.
Ultimately, I create art so I can go on a trip. The viewer is as a passenger on my journey. My hope is they might experience something that first affected me as a thought and helped me create and hone that idea into a reality, albeit a reality on canvas.
