Hernan Bas - A Brief Intermission

Idea Code 18520

American artist Hernan Bas produces highly detailed, expressionist figurative paintings deeply influenced by late 19th-century decadent art and literature, as well as the concurrent symbolist and decorative style. His inspiration and references, aesthetically grounded in the iconography of the male dandy, come from tales of adventure, romances, mystery, fairy tales, and classical mythology. Published with an exhibition of his work at CAC Málaga, this visually stunning catalogue demonstrates how Bas revisits and reinterprets various categories of classical painting from a seemingly melancholic yet often humorous and witty, homoerotic and androgynous perspective.
