Arturo Herrera interweaves fragments of found images into collages which spark recognition in our memories while at the same time remaining enigmatic.
Herrera seeks to clarify through ambiguity, opening up possibilities by uprooting references: as the artist says, his work is “a bridge, but it is paved with the viewer’s own references and associations”. The subjective overpowers the objective in the artist’s new constructions of moments in time and experience.
Arturo Herrera, born 1959 in Caracas, Venezuela, lives and works in Berlin, Germany. He has been collaborating with BORCH Gallery & Editions since 2014.
