Herrera's provocative work includes collage, works on paper, sculpture, wall paintings, and felt wall hangings. Thematically, Herrera subverts recognizable imagery, from cartoons to fairy tales to Abstract Expressionism, to question the legibility and resonance of the language of abstraction, suggesting a non-linear syntax. Herrera uses a fragmented language without eradicating the coded references inherent in the image. 'Above all, Herrera's work has a mysterious quality,' wrote the artist Josiah McElheny in a 2005 article for BOMB, 'a sense that there are narratives to be made, puzzles to put together out of all the pieces.' Herrera previously has had solo shows at Centre d'Art Contemporain, Geneva; Dia Center for the Arts, New York; Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Santiago de Compostela; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Renaissance Society, Chicago; and PS1 Contemporary Art Center, Long Island City, among others. His work appeared in the Whitney Biennial (2002) and Herrera is a Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst (DAAD) Fellowship recipient. He first came to San Antonio as an Artpace International Artist-in-Residence in 2000. The Venezuelan-born artist now lives and works in New York and Berlin.
