Herrera
Artist's Statement

Through my work, I aim to create a universal language. Using a system of logos, signs and symbols, I produce a lexicon of imagery and objects that manifest in my art through the use of metaphors and parables. Utilizing various natural and synthetic materials, I create and investigate my own personal and ritualistic relationship with these resources through my process. The allegorical content I offer unfolds in a symbiotic world where characters and objects coexist in peace or chaos with their respective environments. My narrative explores life and death through the various relationships the characters and objects share ecologically, industrially, and spiritually.

Bio/Resume

(b. 1980, Tampa, FL.):

Formally trained as a painter and presently working primarily in drawing, Herrera also engages in site-specific installation projects and sculpture. In describing his work, he has written: “I am very interested in the landscape. New technologies and contemporary materials have broadened our ideas for utility in our lands, virtually and physically, blending artifice with nature to create a neo-vista. He has had numerous exhibitions in New York and Florida. Herrera has been published in New American Paintings and Studio Visit Magazine and has been awarded residencies at the Cooper Union, Vermont Studio Center, Bronx Museum of the Arts, and most recently at the Jamaica Center for the Arts and Learning.
