Erick Alejandro Hernandez

Erick Alejandro Hernandez was born in Matanzas, Cuba in 1994. After growing up in Lima, Peru and Miami, FL, he received his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design (Providence, RI) and attended The Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (Madison, ME) in 2017. He currently works and lives in Manhattan, NY. His paintings are concerned with a collision of the subjective (memory), the factual (history), and the fantastical (emotion) through a variety of stylistic approaches. As related fragments of a larger narrative, the works function as shifting parts that allow for the navigation of trauma and self-evaluation through their co-existence in a space.
