'Carmen Herrera: Estructuras' at Cheekwood Estate & Gardens, Nashville, TN, USA
4 May 2023
Five geometric Estructuras sculptures by Carmen Herrera are on display in the gardens at Cheekwood Estate in Nashville from 4 May – 3 Septmeber 2023.
Collectively entitled Estructuras (Structures), Herrera conceived of the series in the late 1960s, but only realised many of the works in their three-dimensional forms in recent years. The Estructuras derived from paintings that, according to Herrera, were “really crying out to become sculpture.” The works evokes a simultaneous sense of instability and order, encompassing symmetry and asymmetry, shadow and light, all of which convey movement and rhythm through a careful geometric balance of lines, forms, and color, teetering between the solidity of a three-dimensional sculpture and the weightlessness of an ethereal shape lifting off the ground.
