Elegant lines create languid, looping rhythms and abstract forms of equal parts positive and negative space. Layering shapes that look fluid, viscous, and vaguely familiar, Herrera has established an associative imagery with snippets of body parts from children’s animated films, cropped landscape elements recalling fairy tales, and silhouetted drips and flows that resemble paint. The resulting visual jumble discourages specific and logical readings, and makes the process of perception self-conscious and disorienting. This grid of sixteen intriguing drawings serves as an atlas of images that has generated much of Herrera’s work in the past few years.
