Dan Hernandez, painter, presents a skewed understanding of mythology, religion and violence, enlightened by popular culture. He blurs boundaries, rearranges hierarchies, and calls into question our notions of iconography and devotion. Genres from the recent and distant past collide with ease. He creates mixed media works recalling Renaissance and Byzantine art, and vintage video games.
