Ana María Hernando’s love of plants, birds and the earth permeates the works in this exhibition. From embroidered birdsongs to powerful female mountain deities rendered in tulle, her works give shape to the exuberant spirit of nature through sound, color and texture. A fervent prayer for connection between humans and the soul of nature in all its varied forms, Fervor is an act of devotion illuminating the beauty and irrepressible living energy of the natural world.
