Jodie Herrera: Pieces of Us

April 8, 2021 @ 8:00 am - May 16, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Jodie Herrera: Pieces of Us features a collection of photorealist oil paintings by the Albuquerque painter, muralist, and activist whose work provides a platform for important issues around intersectional feminism. For Pieces of Us, Herrera’s paintings celebrate the beauty and resilience of women who have experienced trauma or persevered through hardships such as addiction, abuse, or cancer.

Herrera takes great care with each story, building personal and supportive relationships with each of her participants. She then narrates their experiences using symbolism within her paintings and a write-up that accompanies each piece. She strives to celebrate the beauty and resilience of these women and hopes they can provide inspiration for others. Herrera’s chiaroscuro painting technique and wooden surfaces create dramatic lighting and depth within her compositions, symbolizing the darkness and emergence of each woman’s story. Included in the show will be several pieces from Herrera’s Women Across Borders series, for which the artist worked specifically with refugee and immigrant women. Other pieces will reference socio-political themes from the past year. Ultimately, the artist’s goal is for her work to be a catalyst for positive change while uplifting and connecting women across cultures.
