Arturo Herrera: Little Bits of Modernism at Albright-Knox Art Gallery

Arturo Herrera: Little Bits of Modernism
at Albright-Knox Art Gallery / USA / Buffalo
Dec 12, 2014 - Apr 5, 2015
Selected from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery’s substantial holdings by Arturo Herrera (Venezuelan, born 1959), this exhibition gives prominence to the artist’s multifaceted practice. Herrera explores the intersection of painting, drawing, and sculpture to create what he calls, “little bits of modernism.”
Working primarily in collage, paint, paper cut-outs, and relief, Herrera taps into the unconscious by merging fragments of found images and abstract shapes, creating partially obscured imaginings imbued with dark psychological undertones. These playful simulacrums contain numerous potential associations. By borrowing visual motifs from children’s books, Disney cartoons, and other sources, Herrera offers viewers multiple portals into his work. Visitors are invited to enter an imaginary world where Bambi slowly emerges from a layer of coffee stains and Snow White is forever suspended in a web-like sprawl of toxic-green paint.
