The artistic project of Lecuona and Hernández is based on the process of the construction of images, on how to contribute physicality and materiality, to a set of abstractions that make up our historical, social and cultural imaginary.
For them it is fundamental to understand how to build an image that is updated as it is affected by the cultural keys of the context in which it is registered at that moment. For this reason they are constantly reviewing and revisiting their own work and therefore they are interested in the specific site, because the work in a specific context always challenges and manifests itself as a continuous and living process.
Somehow, in their relationship with the images, they continually look for their other side, the backstage and the scaffolding. Another of their most obvious interests is to maintain the validity of the pictorial memory, amplifying and resizing the painting, tearing it from the frame, from the canvas and freeing it from the frame, to insert it in a process of continuous materialization and dematerialization. Their desire is to talk about pictorial tension, how the gaze is constructed.
For both, it is essential to participate in the physical construction of the pieces, which always have a performative component and to explore the different means and forms with which to "cook" the art under a firm experimental will. Hence also that they slide without modesty for any type of artistic medium be installation, performance, video, etc. They understand the work of the artist as that of a producer of relationships and experiences in a field always expanded and always porous.
