Anyone who follows this journal has noticed that posts have been rare lately. My recent studio schedule has made it hard to find time for other projects. So this summer I will post a series of features that focus on excellent, but somewhat lesser known painters who I think everyone should know. Here is the first Superb Painter:
Born in 1964 in Colombia, Hernán Ardilo lives and works in Barcelona. His work combines a distinctive color sense with an adept sensitivity to materials to create highly charged dynamic configurations. In the past few years, he has expanded his scope from self-contained oil paintings to wonderful installations of diverse but related objects that activate the space with color and rhythm.
