William Hernandez | Poetic Translations: A Visual Journey

Portland-based, Peruvian painter William Hernandez returns for his second solo exhibition in Seattle with Poetic Translations, a vibrant series of paintings about relationships and memories.

Inspired by poems from Portland writer Christa Kaainoa, Hernandez’s characters spring from a collection of imaginary fairytales and fables, with a blend of whimsy and melancholy throughout the dreamlike scenes.
