Manuel Hernández Ruiz

Athens, Greece


Colombian, b. 1986   —   I paint, draw and I build things with pieces of wood and clay from time to time. I make prints and occasional editorial stuff with small publishers. Most of the time, besides painting pieces of fabric, I'm working out self published books, fanzines and comics, but I lack the discipline of the dedicated ones. Maybe my comics are that: erratic and sporadic manifestations of a distracted mind. You have to accept what you are. The explored issues in my paintings, drawings, cutouts and cardboard and clay figurines only reveal their true essence in a place outside the original plan. It is difficult to make something fully convincing, and yet from time to time the brush mocks the idiotic safe idea that accompanies me at the beginning, declaring its independence. I am a tool of something that I do not know; the messenger of a primal notion floating around. If I'm lucky I can grab it and do something with it, without being certain of any result. I do not know if there are any lessons in my daily routine. I know there are enough glimpses to save the day, to change realities. Meanwhile I’m ignorant, I draw a line.
