Maybe I’m a lost soul, but I like this place
In her first U.S. solo exhibition, “Maybe I’m a lost soul, but I like this place”, Colombian artist Alejandra Hernández explores the strange yet familiar feeling of nostalgic belonging and isolation. Finding inspiration from the stories of New Mexico’s people and landscape, found photos and pop culture gathered during her two month residency at Mayeur Projects, her paintings and drawings are intimate reflections on the mysterious journey of life.
