Carmen Herrera: Works on Paper 2010-2012
Library Shelf Location 18.HERR
Publication Date 2012

Lisson Gallery Milan presents an exhibition of new works on paper by Carmen Herrera. Herrera produced a number of paintings on paper throughout the 1960s, but subsequently focused on canvas until revisiting the medium in 2010. This new body of work showcases not only her revised treatment of the medium but also a new dimension to her work. There will be a catalogue of 42 works to accompany this exhibition with an essay written by Estrellita B. Brodsky.

Preparatory drawing lies at the core of Herrera’s practice and is the starting point for all her work. Herrera begins the process of making these paintings (comprising pencil and acrylic on paper) with mathematical drawings on tracing paper that are governed by lines, numbers and disciplined decisions. It is here that the compositional rationale and choice of colour are formulated. As the works shown here demonstrate, once translated onto larger paper, of two different sizes carrying the same proportions, her mathematical precision and clarity of vision are expressed through a variety of shapes, structures and spatial relationships.
