Arturo Herrera
Venezuelan, b. 1959
Follow

Known for his intricate and evocative abstract compositions, Arturo Herrera’s frenetic, interlacing forms echo both the sinuous tangles of Jackson Pollock and the Analytic Cubism of Pablo Picasso. Herrera works in mixed media, painting (on a variety of supports), sculpture, and collage—he has attributed his interest in the latter to its being a democratic medium requiring only scissors, paper, and glue, and little studio space. Herrera has more recently turned to painting directly on gallery walls, creating large-scale compositions of wandering biomorphic imagery. He also works in felt, cutting the soft material into shapes resembling the forms in his paintings and installing them in wall-mounted reliefs, blurring traditional boundaries between two- and three-dimensional artwork.
