About Gimena Herrera

About the portraits

With these paintings I attempt to find the motives that draw my perception in order to create striking images
by my personal understanding of shape and palettes. Portraiture allows me to freely explore the endless
possibilities of human representation, and different aesthetics without any preconceptions. I can combine
certain colours that, despite not being literal, let me take to another level of realism. I´m curious about finding
the attributes that make every person unique and special.
