Lorena Herrero is a Spanish printmaker who lives and works in London. Her work has been exhibited throughout London and the UK in numerous occasions and has work in collections at the V&A and selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2018.
Her first approach to Intaglio, and more specifically Etching, explores the scope and the potential of the medium and her work is influenced from various sources and often represent a mixture between a realistic world and a fantastic dimension where nature and urban spaces come together.
Geometry continues to be a great source of inspiration in her work, and concepts such as lines, forms, symmetry and asymmetry, shapes and dimensions. Study the repetition of lines in regular or irregular intervals to create complex compositions, how to find order and balance in each composition and how to break that balance. Although these ideas are all present but there is also an element of unpredictability and randomness which adds flexibility and, to certain extend, loss of control over the composition.
Lorena has been a member of East London Printmaking for several years and often represents ELP in groups exhibitions and Art fairs.
