Melissa Herrington Featured at Art Basel in Miami

Published December 3, 2018


The Vogelsang Gallery of Brussels will exhibit Los Angeles artist and FSU Art BFA ’97 Melissa Herrington on December 4, 2018 on view until December 9, 2018. Herrington will make her debut during Art Basel: Miami Art Week, at Scope, with 4 new large-scale paintings.

Herrington’s new abstract series “Morpheme and Half Moon Days” explores the ideas of expansiveness and continuity reduced to its purest essence.  Each work functions as both an individual entity and as a part of a larger theme.  Herrington explores gestural marks and subtle forms through this abstraction. Layers are fundamental to her imagery and process; she employs underpainting, graphite lines, and subtractive techniques to infuse a work with multiple surfaces. At the heart of her artistic practice is an unmistakable relationship between distilled color and form.
