Hermes Illana



I am still trying to define the word ‘artist’ or even to accept the title for myself. In my work I just try to give a different meaning and function to objects that I find. I work mainly with recycled metal and wood. I also experiment with a medium that I call photographic sculpture, which challenges the boundaries of 2D photography. 

I am originally from Brazil and have been living in Durham, NC since 2004.
