Yasmin Hernandez Art
Borikn Bioluminiscente, 2019
Acrylic on black paper
6x9 inches (unmatted/ unframed)
Original acrylic painting on black paper. This image of Puerto Rico is inspired by my artwork exploring bioluminescence. Puerto Rico has three bioluminescent bays in Vieques, Fajardo and Lajas.
Black Backgrounds have been part of my creative practice since 2009 in honor of Vieques’ bioluminescent bay and that took on new meaning after living through Hurricanes Irma and Maria and their dark aftermath.
