Jason Hernandez's work demonstrates a fascination with the universe and theoretical physics. His recent body of work is a collection of drawings and intricate oil and gold leaf paintings inspired by Byzantine art with a whimsical humor. The artist explores astronomy and what it might be like for pioneering astronauts to travel great distances throughout an immeasurable universe.
"I believe man has always been a curious creature. That curiosity has lead man to the farthest and darkest corners of the earth. We've made Earth our home and in it, we've shared our philosophies and sciences. We've become a race of dreamers, thinkers and worshipers. In doing so, we've made a tiny mark in a vast Universe. Still, I can't help but wonder if Earth will forever remain the dwelling place for mankind.
In a world where scientific breakthroughs have the potential to reach outcomes of transcendental levels, it is not absurd to assume that the future of mankind may in fact expand as far as the outer reaches of space. Whether or not man will be driven to outer space by mother natures fury, our own faults, or simply to test our own potential, its clear to me that space will truly be man's last frontier."
