Yasmin Hernandez Art
Borikén Nebula, 2019
Colored pencil on black paper
6x9 inches (unmatted/ unframed)

Original colored pencil drawing on black paper. This image of Puerto Rico is inspired by my artwork exploring nebulas.  The colors are that of the Puerto Rican flag, also representing colors reflected in space in Hydrogen/ Oxygen, the elements of the water prevalent on our Earth and in our bodies.

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.
