Bañista, Diango Hernández 2021, oil on canvas, 50 x 40 cm (now on view at Kestner Gesellschaft, Hanover)
The waves suggest the prospect of a universal language. And yet it’s a kind of code, a private space where both ideas and objects and memories might reside. Diango’s waves offer an infinite realm of possibilities. There is no end to what could be done with them. It’s as if Diango uncovered his own DNA markers, and every work builds upon this inner structure. Sometimes gestural, sometimes more systematic.
