“A Mexican American artist born and raised in Chicago, Herman Aguirre (b. 1992) is known for his paintings that take on subject matter ranging from memorials to lives lost due to gang violence, to intimate still-lifes of collected, personal objects. His newest body of work, Agua y Aceite, includes canvases of various sizes, many irregularly shaped, as well as preparatory ink drawings. To create his impasto, canvas surfaces, the artist ‘works intuitively’ with paint skins and oil and acrylic accumulations to build up the three-dimensionality, resulting in work that straddles the line between painting and sculpture.”

​- excerpt from Surface Tension by Nadiah Rivera Fellah, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at the Cleveland Museum of Art
