Hernan Bas makes paintings that are tinged with nihilist romanticism and influenced by the writings of Joris Karl-Huysmans and Oscar Wilde. His portrayals of boyish exploration and supernatural landscapes are both elaborate and theatrical and depict androgynous figures engaged in rituals of courtship, love and death. Bas’ works have been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions, among them the 2012 retrospective at the Kunstverein Hannover, Germany; the 2007 retrospective at the Rubell Family Collection, Miami, which presented a decade of the artist’s work and traveled to the Brooklyn Museum of Art in February 2008; and his inclusion in the Nordic Pavilion at the 53rd Venice Biennale, curated by Elmgreen & Dragset. His work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The artist is represented by Lehman Maupin Gallery in New York, Victoria Miro Gallery in London and Perrotin Gallery.
