Rooted in Latin American culture and continuing in the European painting tradition,
Ruben Herrera has found a completely idiosyncratic imagery.
Herrera has the firm conviction that nothing in this world is completely defined.
In his painting a landscape can transform into a human figure and dissolve into a landscape again simultaneously.
Beginning becomes end and then beginning again.  Everything is fluid, multifaceted and interchangeable.

The woodcut series is a search for the possibilities within the woodcut-print technique in conjunction with a form study of silhouettes.
The silhouettes in the prints are ambivalent forms that can be interpreted as human, plant and fruit-like.
It is a search for indeterminacy in form and meaning, one of the recurring themes in Ruben Herrera’s body of work.
