Gift of Janet Lennie Flohr

While in residency at Artpace San Antonio, Arturo Herrera produced That Very Day, a series of prints that extract and rearrange lines from popular sources with the staccato rhythm of animated cartoons. The relief prints contain negative space of white lines on a soft, baby blue foreground, evoking childhood memories in a dense, urban composition. Herrera’s work, playing a balancing act between abstraction and representation, shifts scale, experiments with form, and ultimately leaves itself wide open to the viewer.
