Ana María Hernando, from Argentina and based in Colorado, is a multidisciplinary artist. She is interested in making the invisible visible, and devotedly explores the sacred feminine through women's rich histories, their daily lives and relationship to hand-worked textiles and wares. In her installations, Ana María uses textiles in abundance, and includes 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.
Ana María is the 2020 Prix Henry Clews in Sculpture awardee chosen by La Napoule Art Foundation. She spent 2020 in-residency and having a major solo show at the foundation’s Château and gardens by the Mediterranean in France. She has recently had solo exhibitions at the CU Art Museum with a published catalogue, Seidel City (Boulder, CO), Robischon Gallery (Denver, CO), and Building Bridges (Los Angeles, CA).
