A new wall painting by Arturo Herrera (born Venezuela 1959) has been unveiled in Tate Modern’s Kitchen & Bar. Herrera has used a wide range of techniques and media to explore his enduring interest in abstraction. His forms may be derived from cutting up and painstakingly rearranging images found in popular culture or be entirely abstract in origin.
For this commission, Herrera uses a combination of large solid shapes to ‘reflect the energy of Tate Modern as a fluid space where things are never static. The colours, dark and light blue bring an alert calmness to the space while being expansive and open-ended… The colour blue also brings to mind both water and sky and that is distinctly evident at Tate Modern with the River Thames in front of the building and the open sky all around.’ (Arturo Herrera writing in May 2016)
The artwork was created with funds provided by Dasha and William Shenkman in memory of their mother, Belle Shenkman, 1928-1995, patron of the arts.
