Recently i had visited Ikon Gallery in the Brindley place,Birmingham.These pieces of work were from an artist called Carmen Herrera who was born in Havana,Cuba in 1915.I like her work particularly for its formal simplicity with less colors.She normally used two colors and focused on pure geometry,such as line,color,and space.The way she used the simple colors worked well as they are painted in perfect composition and layout.I like the bright colors as they can grab your attention from a distance in the art gallery.Especially they stand out from the white wall of the gallery.
