Catalogue Note

"Herrera's melting, weblike pieces are haunted by familiar ghosts that never declare themselves. In one of the more convoluted methods of post-1980's appropriation, their melded motifs are extracted from Disney cartoons (especially ''Snow White'') and overlaid with flowing linear skeins that suggest ink spills. They could be nicknamed ''Wet Pollocks,'' after Dali's ''Wet Watches,'' and evoke Surrealist techniques like collage, automatic drawing and image-defacement...[these works] clarify Mr. Herrera's astute and seamless hybrid of high and low, hermetic and ingratiating, and found, made and reproduced."
