Waiting for the night. Oil on linen, 1998

In Hervás' paintings there is a wish of cosmic universality; an expression, unique in its root and widely varied in its shapes, of creativity in pure state. From the sea shore of the Mediterranean sea -the great interior lake where he found out about life and learned about death-, where his most authentic paintings started to take shape after those first years of training and learning, Hervás Amezcua has travelled


towards the high sky, just like the prophet who was taken by a carriage of fire did; although he has also fallen, as a man who fears and commits sin, into the most deep abyss.

He has been able to capture and use those characteristics typical of an angel or a demon that coexist in any human. He has taken advantage of them without getting burnt in any of the two flames in which virtue and sin blaze. He is capable to tell us trough his art, the best of each of those two moments, the diverse anaemic moods which unconditionally, sooner or later, we all will experience.

Mauve moon. Gavà, 1998. Príncipe de Vergara Hotel, Madrid.

In this prophetic path, the artist has not always been in stress. Without leaving the tracks he took, he has appreciated the calm moments in his trips to Brazil, Iceland and Israel, just like he has enjoyed those moments before the departure and coming back to the beach of Gavà and the galaxy of sensations that it means to him.

In spite of this, he never forgot the mission he had imposed himself, the main objective of his trips: the discovering of his inner self through the knowledge of a world in which all human reactions have remained in pure state. (...)

The violence of the landscape chosen by the artist is praised by the beauty of tropical colours , and also by the areas in which the wind does and undoes at its own pleasure. And all of that is being nourished by a planet the tears leave aside in certain places, in order to show his burning heart. It is at this point that Hervás Amezcua's art shows its creative unity in the wide mental space of emotions. (...)

Gavà cel, terra y mar. Oil on canvas. Gavá 1995.
Diptych inspired in the space concept of architect Jaume Vendrell.

Light is a persistent element in painting and it is so in Hervás Amezcua's work as well. To my understanding, light's purpose is salvation, which connects with mystical experiences. Therefore, if we take advantage of the artistic help that he is offering us, we will be able to reach dream paradises in which imagination perpetuates all the contents of his art. (...)
