Carmen Herrera Herrera’s paintings propose a radical way of thinking of line, form and space, in relationship to negative and positive space. The artist’s reductive style is defined by the precision and simplicity of a geometric structure. In the words of the artist: “It is a process that must choose, among innumerable possibilities, the one that balances reason and visual execution”. Herrera’s long-term commitment to the development of a distinct personal vocabulary positions her at the forefront of an investigation of formal concerns, aesthetics and history, associated with artists such as Barnett Newman, Ellsworth Kelley, Lygia Clark, Bridget Riley, among others.

Emilio Sanchez Sanchez began his artistic training at the Art Students League in 1944 when he moved to New York where he lived until he died in 1999. However, it was in Cuba that he became fascinated with the play of light and shadow on colored forms that became a dominant characteristic of his works. In the 1960s his works became significantly more abstract, though always maintaining a strong sense of naturalism in his well-known paintings of houses and architectural themes. Sanchez has had over sixty solo exhibitions. His art is well represented in private and public collections like the Museum of Modern Art of New York, the Metropolitan Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Fanny Sanin Colombian-born painter Fanny Sanin is one of the greatest living color field painters. Her works are made of smoothly intersecting and overlapping planes of warm colors that bring to mind both monumental architecture and textile designs.Sanin has exhibited her work in 250 group shows and 35 solo or retrospective exhibitions. Sanín was included in the travelling exhibition of Latin American Women Artists 1915-1995, which opened at the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Jose Tannuri Born in Brazil, Tannuri focuses on the physical barriers, including walls and fences that are built to contain and isolate violence in urban areas. Tannuri’s installations, photography and videos build on the contradictions inherent in the dialectics of exclusion/inclusion.Tannuri’s artistic career began a decade ago at the Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Laje in Rio de Janeiro. His work is included in important public and private collections. He is the recipient of the 2006 Award from Funarte and the First Prize winner of the Prêmio Interferências Urbanas in 2001.For more information please visit arteamericas.com
