Leticia Herrera Flight of the Butterfly

The fluid and passionately energetic brushstrokes give a structural backbone to the strong horizontal motion of these compositions. Occasionally referencing figurative or landscape-like forms in her works, Herrera’s art defies simplistic labels and categorization, instead creating a personal style and visual dialog through the combination of mixed media, oils, and acrylic paints on linen and canvas. Herrera immersed herself in her painting following the death of her closest friend, finding a renewed sense of joy and inspiration for her life in the expression of her inner creativity.

Born and raised in Mexico City, Mexico, Leticia Herrera now lives and works in Mckinney, TX. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Louisiana State University and worked for several years as a Creative Director with Avon Mexico before diving full-time into her career as a professional artist.

About the Exhibition
Agora Gallery, NYC is delighted to present two exhibitions that contain the joy and zest of spring, giving viewers a feeling of optimism, energy and hope. In Sensorial Perspectives viewers can appreciate the elegant, intricate approach that leads to works that are both engaging and visually stunning. Careful observation grounds every piece, demonstrating the power that a real connection to the world and its mysteries has in the creative process, but each artist brings their own unique perspective and magic to their work, with dazzling consequences. The Essence of Abstraction provides a feast for the eyes, presenting the work of artists who allow their glowing inner conviction and inspiring sense of reality and its fully dynamic nature to spill out into their works, animating and enlivening each piece. The result is art that stirs the imagination and touches the heart.

The exhibitions open on March 2, 2013 and continue until March 22, 2013, with an opening reception on the evening of Thursday, March 14, at 6-8 pm. Art lovers are enthusiastically encouraged to attend and meet some of the talented artists who created the memorable and moving works on display.
