Alluring Presence, Wood and brass base, 24 x 14 x 6 inches

Pedro Hernández (b. 1932, Havana): A physician as well as an artist, Hernández’s favorite medium is wood, which he sculpts into smooth abstract pieces, but he has also produced delicate cut drawings on paper, which reflect his interest in Panamanian molas. Hernández has exhibited at the O Y Art Gallery in Coral Gables and at the Latin Network for the Visual Arts in Gales Ferry, Conn., where he participated in the exhibition Presenting Latin Visual Art to Southeastern Connecticut. He is the winner of a first prize award for Creativity and Collage at Tonneins-Bordeaux, France. His work is in the permanent collection of the Miami-Dade Public Library. Hernández studied medicine at the University of Havana. (Cintas for art, 1983-84)
