This series marks the artist’s shift from collage, felt sculpture, and wall painting to painted canvas.

According to Ximena Ojeda, “Herrera’s painting reflects the voice of a colorful soul that can be heard through images, feelings and insights that surface.”

Though a change of medium, the work still looks like Arturo Herrera. The painting is flat, but the image inside it is not. It’s got a lot of dimension and movement.

This is Herrera’s seventh solo exhibition at Sikkema Jenkins & Co.
