The Centro de Arte Caja de Burgos (Burgos, Spain) is hosting one of the most important monographic exhibitions of Pepo Hernando (Burgos, 1950-2022) in recent years. “Every Landscape is a Metaphor” emphasizes the importance of Hernando as one of the most prolific artists from Castilla y León, showing for the first time works that have been only shown in the intimacy of his studio. Inaugurated on October 6 and on view until December 1, 2023, the exhibition brings together an important selection of his most recent production, a painting halfway between Op Art and minimalist abstraction, resulting in a delicate and ductile interweaving of shapes and colors. In the words of Javier del Campo San José, curator of the exhibition, “the echo of a repetitive, almost unconscious writing, the result of a self-absorbed meditation, is amplified by the patterns of colour. Intercalations of chromatic networks generate variations and nuance, and alter the formal convention of backgrounds and surfaces. In this way Hernando modifies the relationship of depth and perspective, giving his painting the rare quality of simultaneously perceiving flatness and volume, plasticity and solidity”.
