Simple images in which nature and man live together in perfect balance. These are the illustrations of Dakota Hernández, stage name of Miriam García, a Spanish illustrator who creates works in which two subjects always dominate.
The first is nature in all its forms, from immense landscapes with boundless lakes and plains to simple plants that catch the eye. The second undisputed protagonist of her works is the presence of female figures, nude portraits, without veils. This choice, to present the human being naked, without superstructures, reinforces the bond with the environment, giving us the feeling that it is there, in the middle of the green grass and the blue sky, the right place for him.
Looking at Dakota Hernández’s illustrations you can breathe air of freedom, you can feel that atmosphere of relaxation and peace that you only get when you get lost in remote places, far from the chaos of the city and the hours of everyday life. Everything is so natural, everything is so perfect.
This perfection, as well as being created by the subjects, is underlined by a wise one of colours, never too soft, but never too marked. The chromatic balance shows how the choice of the palette is a fundamental step for Dakota Hernández, which then inspires from the shapes of the bodies, their poses and natural elements.
