ALEJANDRINA HERRERA

2018 JUNE EXHIBIT
 

Sager Braudis Gallery is pleased and honored to bring to our audience the works of renowned Mexican artist and illustrator Alejandrina Herrera. Through a careful hybridization of expression and illustration, Herrera, with accomplished technical skill, tells stories of relationships and interactions otherwise relegated to memory. Meticulous rendering in pencil, requiring much time and labor, is meant also to slow down viewing of the works, asking the spectator to contemplate, remember, and connect. The artist proposes, she says, to “bring back the intimacy of memories,” speaking to minute, nostalgic snippets of everyday life, almost forgotten.
