La Sad Girl by Adan Hernandez
Seeing that our 4Runner broke down today and we’ll be renting a replacement for a couple days – at the worst possible time!! – and that it is Hispanic Heritage Month, I thought I’d share some works from my peeps.
This is a print by Adan Hernandez of of Los Invizibles.com. I found this site by accident tonight and liked this image. I’m La Sad Girl tonight. OK, maybe I’m not as raw and rought as this mujer in the painting, but I’m dealing with a case of Murphy’s Law this week and it’s only Monday. Err… Tuesday. Anyway, here’s a bit about the artist:
Adan Hernandez is a modern artist whose work merges Neo-Expressionism with Chicano-Noir. The aesthetics in his art evoke emotions of alienation, uncertainty, desperation and loss, which dominates the Chicano experience. An experience which lurks in the shadows of the American Dream.
And since I mentioned him, I must also throw props to a friend of mine, Joe Ray, who now has his work on display at Nordstroms as part of the national El Amor Ahora (Love Now) exhibit!
Triste y Poderoso (Sad and Powerful) by Joe Ray.
OK, I’m off to bed to dream about cars that have healthy engines and stuff like that…
