"The Dream" by Handy Hernández is a figurative nude work of art made of oil and canvas.
Handy Hernández work can be described as a mixture of sensual, mysterious, and clarity. This comes from his Figurative work on the naked body while experimenting with bright colors that accentuate the female body and does more than justice to every curve available. His series of Diluted Dreams explore each a different color and how it relates to the experience of bodies and how each body serves as a canvas within a canvas.
"The Dream" is exactly what it implies, the thing that both men and women dream of and desire. It is beauty and perfection exemplified in a woman's body with the perfect arch in her torso further giving the viewer something to dream about. Part of any modern home, this nude would fit perfectly above the bed of a room to bring life and color into any wall that the work prostrates itself on.
