We are all blended with a swath of experiences; walking, breathing, thinking creatures full of insight and emotions expelled through every single pore. Our aura illuminates spaces of darkness and drives ideas through vision, endowing minds with fragments of personality shimmering through a kaleidoscope of colour.
Turks and Caicos Islands based artist of Indo/Afro Caribbean descent; HezronH, explores this concept via fine art and illustration. His body of work consists of acrylic on paper, canvas and digital painting; adapting traditional painting mediums to his signature style. His artwork is characteristically laden with vibrant colours which serve to highlight the emotive power of colour.
He believes that it is essential that artists make no apologies for their work; his passion is an honest artistic expression, creating an experience people can enjoy and connect with on an ethereal level.
As an artist my aim is to delve into the concept of identity via the depiction of figurative portrait art. Using focal points of the face to bring across the emotions of the subject in relation to the idea I seek to project. This idea however is not one that is preached; it is a conversation, a dialogue between the subject, the viewer and myself.
The art explores facets of identity through the lens of colour, culture, individuality in society and the community as a whole. Through the use of colours in my art I present a visual language that appears chaotic and disorienting but as a whole the precision can be realized through a macro view and its scale revealed.
It is a work that beckons the viewer to be invested in the subject, in the idea, in the heart of the narrative presented visually. It also creates an avenue by which they project facets of their own character into the work, and it becomes a reflection of their lived experience. I capture their essence and show it to the world, the struggles and the hope of the spirit ‘s undying chase.
