Born in Havana, Cuba, Carmen Herrera moved between France and Cuba throughout the 1930s and 1940s, before settling in New York in 1954, where she continues to live and work. “Beacon II” displays her immense skill at creating striking compositions through the calculated use of contrasting colors and shapes. Bright red triangles cut across the canvas horizontally and vertically, creating an expansive horizon line that recalls a burst of light.
