Herminio Álvarez

About the artist

La Caridad, Asturias, Spain (1945)

Self-taught, Herminio Álvarez, reflects in his works his interest to revoke the barriers between science and art. In the early nineties, he exhibits his first wooden sculptures, which, by a system of counterweights, are presented to the viewer in a state of permanent instability.

The development of his knowledge about magnetic fields in recent years, has led his research to design artistic works in a state of weightlessness or implausible positions, thus causing a reaction of surprise in the viewer.

His works are in the permanent collections of the Museo de La Rioja, Logroño , Spain; Museo de Bellas Artes de Asturias, Oviedo Spain; Dobe Collection, New York; Collection Ichiro Sudo, Tokyo; Collection Marcel Scheiner, South Carolina; Collection Peter Vardy, Chicago.

Among his individual and collective exhibitions, the following stand out: Galería Benedet, Oviedo (1993); Galería Cornión, Gijón (1994); Feria Art International NY98, New York (1998); ARCO ’99, Madrid (1999); Art Fia, Caracas (2000); Feria de Arte Palm Beach, Miami (2001); Feria de Arte Fil 03, Lisboa (2003); Galería NMariño, Paris (2007); Art Miami (2007); Galería Gema Llamazares, Gijón (2008); Museo de Bellas Artes de Asturias, Oviedo (2008); “Materia Gris” Galería Cayón, Madrid (2009); “Herminio.
