Los Angeles Art Association is proud to feature artist Gina Herrera at Art Palm Springs 2019 in the VIP lounge February 15-18, 2019 at the Palm Springs Convention Center.
Opening night February 14, 2019

While serving in Iraq, amid the devastation of combat, Gina Herrera was moved by seeing miles of mountainous trash heaps. She viscerally experienced the global extent of the systematic destruction of the planet, exploitative, unsustainable, and perhaps worst, careless, unconscious, accidental. This led her to question her artistic practice: she began to build three-dimensional forms out of discarded and natural objects. 

Herrera is engaged in an aesthetic and spiritual ritual to channel and honor Mother Earth, to seek connection and communion with a power greater than herself.  Herrera recently resigned my commission after almost 25 years of service, and this has led her to contemplate, transform and express the complexities of this specific part of her history in her recent work.
