Carmen Herrera explores geometric shapes and the relationship between color and form. Since her first collaboration with ULAE in 2017, she has continued to create vibrant color and crisp lines in the form of lithography, intaglio, and most recently aquatint with chine collé.

An American-Cuban Minimalist artist, Carmen Herrera received acclaim much later in life, but is now considered a central figure in geometric abstraction. "My quest is for the simplest of pictorial resolutions," states Herrera, who is nearing her 105th birthday.

In her newest edition, Herrera returns to her exploration of circular imagery. She has always been curious and challenged by the painting in the round. It appealed to her as early as 1948 - and has been a recurring, if sporadic, theme throughout her career. A circular shape may seem ironic by someone who has been so enamored with the straight line, but she has said the round canvas is a demanding stage and she loves the daring element it offers a painter.

In this selection of prints, comprising both triptychs and individual limited editions, Herrera pulls from the visual imagery of her sculptures and paintings over the last five decades. She never ceases to captivate the eye and inspire.

Since a very young age my attention has always been on signs of every kind
(some that I have painted by hand and others that are blank or enigmatic). These new editions are about neglected and forgotten signs from neglected and forgotten landscapes.

Ed Ruscha

Ed Ruscha was born on December 16, 1937 in Omaha, NE. He grew up in Oklahoma City before moving to Los Angeles to study art at the Chouinard Institute (now the California Institute of the Arts). Deeply influenced by the culture and atmosphere of Southern California, Los Angeles as a place has proved to be a consistent wellspring for Ruscha’s imagination. In 2016, he was the subject of a sprawling exhibition at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, titled “Ed Ruscha and the Great American West,” it included 99 works which dealt with America’s captivation with the western landscape and manifest destiny. The artist’s works are held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Tate Gallery in London, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. He continues to live and work in Los Angeles, CA.
