Statement



Art must enclose a meaning, not just to convey a proper feeling if not to bring something to people who have contact with it, carrying a message, something that transcends, art can be purely contemplative and that does not have less value, however since my first artwork I saw art as the essential element and the perfect means to move something in people, for me, the artwork is not the end, on the contrary it is the beginning, the trigger for anything else. I do not think you have to be inspired to create because creation is inspiration itself, art must inspire those who make it and who observes.

Throughout time, there is something that has always been present in our lives. Tales, stories and legends have, at some point crossed our paths, reviving our imagination as well as becoming part of popular culture, mostly due to their symbolism and meanings.
This interest in the relationship of these stories and the bond between people and literature, in the today world, is what has led me to develop research for more than 20 years on this issue, which has resulting in several works mainly based on the union of text, image and meaning.
(I consider most of my paintings symbolics and/or expressionist mixed media)As in these particular Stories, I base my work in hidden meanings, using layer , between shades, textures, colours and fragments from the texts. These generate unique images that aim at showing recognisable elements that produce short moments of connection and the possibility of creating new meanings out of those elements.


“There is something magical about fairy tales. Something ancestral and mystic, something that makes us feel suspicious at the entrance to a forest. Or something that urges us to seek the protection of a fireplace and a roof as night falls. There is something about fairy tales that provoke their charm to stay with us ever after, that guides us over the years in search for prince charming and remind us how to defeat evil witches that haunt us around life’s ins and outs. That “something” is magic, and we see it emerging every time in Jeice Hernandez’s brush strokes. A young artist with an outstanding technique indorsed by her great classic training”.
