Exhibition: Carmen Herrera: Estructuras Monumentales
The legendary Cuban-American artist Carmen Herrera’s radiant compositions simplify juxtaposed forms to their purest elements of color and geometry, creating a distinctive and iconic clarity by emphasizing ‘the beauty of the straight line’.
Marking her first major exhibition of outdoor sculptures, Herrera is known for creating vibrant and abstract paintings. Informed by her architectural training, Herrera began the series in the 1960s with a group of diagrammatic sketches. She envisioned large-scale monochromatic sculptures that would extend the experience of her luminous paintings into three dimensions.
