In his residency entitled A Bridge Between Landscapes, Gregory Michael Hernandez will create hybrid forms, images, and projects that metaphorically bridge two or more locations, combining his working materials and influences and mingling images from both desert wilderness and urban built environments. While at work in The Artist Studio Hernandez will be preparing a solo exhibition at Roberts and Tilton Gallery, Culver City in 2013.

Hernandez considers his work to be an ongoing, slow evolution from one body of work to the next, using preceding projects as conceptual stepping stones for those in the future. In accordance with his mission to construct a grander, hybrid art form, visitors will have the opportunity to both experience and witness this interactive process. Therefore, The Artist Studio will be used as an intersection between a gallery, a workshop, and a think-tank for the germination of future projects. Hernandez invites discussions with other artists and the public in order to cultivate inspiration for future work.

In conjunction with his residency Hernandez will make his signature Captive Universe pieces available to visitors. These photographic collages are comprised of 26 individual photographs that, when assembled, offer a panoramic, three-dimensional expansion of Renaissance one-point perspective. Visitors will be provided materials to cut, fold, and shape these photo-globes, which may then be taken home or given to the artist to be integrated into a future exhibition.

Gregory Michael Hernandez lives and works in Los Angeles. A graduate of Biola University, Hernandez has had solo shows at LAX Art and Emma Gray Headquarters, both in Culver City. He has participated in group exhibitions at the Torrance Art Museum, Gallery 727, and the L.A. Municipal Gallery. The artist is a 2011 recipient of the California Community Foundation Fellowship for Visual Artists and received a grant from the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department for a project at LAX Airport. He is preparing for an upcoming solo exhibition at Roberts and Tilton Gallery, Culver City, in 2013.
