Artist Statement of Will HerreraArt making is an exploration of beauty. Beauty experienced within the qualities of the materials used in the art making process and how they are transformed to reflect varied forms of beauty... beauty found in life, life forms and our environment. Line, colour and form expand universal possibilities for pure communication. The intention of my work is to transfer feeling through abstract expression.
