Secundino Hernández: time TIME

Exhibition 11 October–12 November 2022
16 Wharf Road, London N1 7RW

Victoria Miro is delighted to present time TIME, an exhibition of new paintings by Secundino Hernández.

One of the most dynamic painters of his generation, Secundino Hernández is acclaimed for his spirited enquiry into the language, history and enduring potential of abstraction. New works represent contrasting aspects of the artist’s practice, sharing an exploratory quality that openly displays the challenges of the creative process but also the satisfactions it can provide for artist and viewer alike. Several examples are derived from processes of adding and subtracting paint. Almost archaeological in nature, Hernández’s methods involve erasing pigment, a series of marks and gestures, to expose the canvas beneath. The exhibition also includes ‘palette’ paintings. Created through a highly visceral accumulation of pigment, their intense impasto-like surfaces transform the ‘stuff’ of painting, its materiality, into undulating terrains of pigment – elemental and compelling.
