About

This astonishing 160 cm tall corn assemblage is made up of authentic ceramic corn cob reproductions. These are dyed using grana cochineal ( a scale insect from which the natural dye carmine is derived -- usually growing on cactus plant). The corn cobs are united by a wire to hang down. Take tradition to evolve, transform, and innovate are all part of Omar Hernández’s work. Born in a pottery town he was taught from a young age the fundamentals. It was later when Omar decided to change the direction of the work he was doing to create his own language. His creations include objects inspired by pre-Hispanic pieces (ceremonial vessels), utilitarian pieces (oval casseroles, bowls, jars) that transform completely when decorating them with own designs and turning them into works of object art, and ornamental pieces inspired by nature (wall hanging pieces, vases with decoration of vegetal elements or large tree leaf size). Focusing his work on the subjects related to Oaxaca, where he is based; such as the perception of death, mezcal, and nature from the state. “I like to work with colors that are found in nature, observing and getting inspired by nature; the texture of the tree trunks and leaves.” Omar cooks his pieces in both wood and gas oven. Using sgraffito decoration or modeling of decorative elements to be added to the main parts; in other cases using the texture of natural elements (leaves, stones) that he prints on fresh mud.
