About Ana Maria Hernando
Ana Maria Hernando is a multidisciplinary artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina, who is currently living and working in Colorado. Hernando considers the balance between the material and the transcendent, devotedly exploring the sacred feminine through women’s rich histories, their daily lives, and their relationship to hand-worked textiles and wares. Her installations include the work of women from around Latin America, from embroideries of cloistered nuns in Buenos Aires to the weavings and wares of Peruvian women from the mountains.
Hernando’s solo shows include the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, Tweed Museum of Art, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, International Center of Bethlehem, Oklahoma Contemporary and Marfa Contemporary, Denver Botanic Gardens, and University of Colorado Art Museum. She recently completed a billboard in Downtown Denver and has done temporary public art for the City of Boulder and for Re/Call, an event by Redline Contemporary Art Center and Rocky Mountain Land Library. Her work has been featured in several publications a well as a documentary titled Undomesticated. As the recipient of the Prix Henry Clews 2020 from La Napoule Art Foundation, Hernando will spend the next year working and putting together a major solo show at the foundation’s gardens in France.
