Intelligence Lines of Sight: Carmen Herrera at The Whitney Museum of American Art

Carmen Herrera: Lines of Sight is the first major museum exhibition of the Cuban American artist’s work and it looks quite stunning in The Whitney’s light-filled galleries. The show tracks Herrera’s work from 1940s Paris to 1970s New York and showcases her signature abstract paintings which focus on pure form and color.

Its interesting to see how her training as an architect informed her approach to painting. At 101, the artist is still making new work and its great to see her finally get the attention she deserves. I especially loved the Blanco y Verde series which preoccupied Herrera for twelve years. A series of rectangular compositions in green and white which according to the show’s wall text fill the space “as if Herrera were turning over a block in her mind and excising slivers, like a jeweler cutting facets in a stone."
