Carmen Herrera @ The Perimeter

25 September 2020 - 8 January 2021

Colour, Carmen Herrera says, is always about “a dialogue”, as she has always been “curious about two colours reacting or dancing with each other”.  Thus, paintings in her exhibition  “Colour Me” testify to her words in a trio of panels — “Blues” (1991), “Two Yellows” (1992) and “Horizontal” (1992). Herrera paints the surface in one colour, fizzing lemon or intense cobalt, then disturbs it with a right angle or rectangle whose narrow border contrasts a shade of the same hue. The result illuminates the background colour in such a way as to evoke its essence. Blue has never looked “bluer” than in a Herrera painting.
