Meisterschüler Atelier,
Kunstakademie Karlsruhe
Light from the north enters through a large, slightly tapered rooflight and illuminates the studio. It makes the walls and even the slightest details of the room appear in sober clarity. The artist Rodrigo Hernández, who was born in Mexico City in 1983 and today lives in Karlsruhe, knows how to use this situation of concentration - not, as one might expect, for the presentation of classical painting, but for the wonderfully luminous floor piece Spiral (2011), the deeper meaning of which rests in darkness.
