This event has ended.

David Herman's intensely hued suite of acrylics on canvas was inspired by his travels in Africa, the Caribbean, the Middle East and beyond. Turning perspective on its head, space is flattened, architectonic forms are abstracted, and the human figure is rendered in silhouette.

In stark contrast to the artist's last series of paintings, executed almost entirely in black, white and grays, the new work conveys a sense of optimism and joy. Rife with pulsating color, vernacular architecture is celebrated with animated geometry, while the figure is isolated in an iconic manner, lending the most humble task-like the preparation of sugarcane-a sense of reverence.
