Melissa Herrington is an artist based in
Los Angeles, California.
Herrington paints suggestively. Objects and images are never too explicit, which increase their capacity to evoke a wide range of associations and recollections. This exemplifies the freedom with which Herrington works. Fusing meanings and delicate drawings. Spilling muted tones, marks that are at times methodical in their irregularity. Each nestles among intricately rendered lines with delicate strands wrapping bodies and colors floating across the surface. Appearing left unintentionally by a trace. Translucent stains, bold assured hues merge upon diaphanous graphite marks which weave through the haze of blurred color and suspended images both hidden and prevalent.
