Painting: Acrylic, Charcoal, Graphite, Conte on Canvas.
My paintings are representative of my path, which is inspired by adventure and independence, and my love of color and texture. For me travel is a major catalyst for my evolving themes and artistic practice. I am exploring spontaneous, gestural marks and subtle female forms through abstraction. In all my works color and shape are both organic and intuitive and feminine.
My aim is to create abstract paintings that are contemplative and evocative. The organic quality of my textured marks lends an ephemeral feeling, images imply fluidity. This “unfinished” surface represents an unfolding of possibility. I use the transparent stains and the opaqueness of color. I explore spontaneous, gestural marks and subtle forms through abstraction. Layers are integral to my imagery and process. These pieces are about process. My work examines the theme of transformation.
Herrington's new abstract series "Morpheme and Half Moon Days" explores the ideas of expansiveness and continuity reduced to its purest essence. Each work functions as both an individual entity and as a part of a larger theme. Herrington explores gestural marks and subtle forms through this abstraction. Layers are fundamental to her imagery and process; she employs underpainting, graphite lines, and subtractive techniques to infuse a work with multiple surfaces. At the heart of her artistic practice is an unmistakable relationship between distilled color and form.
