藝術家簡介

Fitz Herrera是一位專門的抽象藝術家,出生在Caloocan,並在Nueva Vizcaya高中畢業,然後再次遷往馬尼拉進行大學教育。可以說,他的部分農村和城市生活的開始和暴露提供了良好的對比,培養了他的創造力。在這些身臨其境,不同尋常的環境中長大成熟,與他的經驗結合,深刻地塑造了他的思想和美學特色。他的家鄉加洛坎是個寧靜但充滿了城市生活和經濟鬥爭的嚴酷現實。此外,他還是以一種嚴格保守的天主教傳統,提供了他以後的生活中的敏感和矛盾,使他的本能,思維和情感敏銳度提高。

1996年至2000年,他在東方藝術大學正式接受過廣告教育,並學習了國內外藝術界的規範。起初,他開始製作具象作品,甚至贏得了一些榮譽,包括在2004年第三名的Metrobank藝術獎。事後看來,他認為這個階段是他在藝術領域的業餘經驗。

最終,Herrera發現抽象創作有更多的自由,也是他在職業生涯中獲得一些關鍵和重視的地方。他的抽象起初感到非常有空間感,可被量化,有點低限主義,並且十分內斂,直到後來變得更加活潑和誘人的自由筆觸,他渴望作品可以隨著時間的推移發展。歷史上是一種藝術手法,他的作品名稱並不表現在他的創作上,而是在作品的意象上,他創作的態度和下筆的筆觸顯露出來的,有時甚至是色彩與空間上的無聲的抗衡來表現出來。

他的首次個展“分化”,靈感來自於他的第一次處在職場中,充滿如此多的隔離與小圈圈。一直以來,他的藝術時常取自於個人的親身經歷和反思體驗的產物。實際上,他的創作是一種私人語彙,它的語法或敘事內容也只有他一個人才能解讀。

對於Herrera來說,自我隱私將永遠是他的藝術的關鍵主體,語境和智慧,總是捕捉到藝術家坦率與真誠的吉光片羽。展覽的題目和他作品的命名都是根據他個人的心境,他們都傾向於他的生活思考,他的勝利,他的痛苦,他的得與失。雖然他認為藝術家和創作者應該以啟發他人生活和行為為信念,但他始終認為經驗是他創造的唯一動力;經驗是作為一個藝術家和人生旅程的印記,不僅僅是由社會環境引發的,而是他在畫布上放大的自己經驗的權重和所引發的蝴蝶效應。

音樂作為儀式和經驗,也扮演他創作的一部分,以及他在藝術創作中的持續前進的動力。事實上,他最初選擇接受聖托馬斯大學(UST)大學音樂學院的培訓。但他也會在不同樂團中扮演鼓手演出。後來他的音樂傾向將在他的第三次個展中特別彰顯,因為這次的創作是以啟發他熱衷音樂的樂手及他最喜歡的歌曲為靈感。

在藝術創作過程中,他傾向於使用混合的制式色彩與顏料來開發自己獨特的色調。他這種DIY調色的手法已經是他早期的一部分及後來創作固的基調,真正地定義了他的作品的紋理和色彩。

作為一名藝術家,Herrera致力於在自己的作品中,沒有任何風格能像抽象的視覺語彙能如此明確表達他尋求自由的渴望。因此,這已經是他藝術創作固有的調性和風格。

他的藝術啟發包括塗鴉抽象藝術家博納多.帕金(Bernardo Pacquing)作品中明顯表達尋求自由的意念,以及抽象名家塞‧湯伯利(Cy Twombly)和國寶級藝術家何西‧荷亞(Jose Joya)。

Artist Profile

Fitz Herrera, a dedicated abstract artist was born in Caloocan, and raised in Nueva Vizcaya until high school and then relocated again to Manila for his college education. It can say that his initiation and exposure to partly rural and then city life provided a good contrast which nurtured his creativity.   Growing up and maturing in these immersive and disparately distinct environments and their textures mixed with his experiences profoundly shaped his thinking and aesthetic character; the province being quiet and then later Caloocan being a more squalid replete with the harsh realities of urban life and economic struggles.  Also, he was raised in a strictly conservative Catholic tradition which provided him the sensibilities and contradictions in his later life that would sharpen his instincts, thinking and emotional acuity.

From 1996 to 2000, he was formally trained at the University of the East- College Fine Arts where he majored in Advertising and learned the canons of the art world here and abroad.  At first, he started producing figurative works and even won some accolades including Metrobank Art Awards where he landed at third place in 2004 among others.  In hindsight, he considered this phase to be his amateur experience in art.

Eventually, Herrera found more freedom in abstraction and it is also where he gained some critical attention and traction to his career.  His abstraction was at first felt very spare, measured, a bit minimal and restrained until it later eventually turned more lively and evoked freedom which he aspired for and developed over time.  Historically and also a artistic tact, his titles don’t show in the surface of his work but the ideas, feelings and attitudes are certainly revealed in the way they are painted and executed involve intense at times even quiet confrontations between pigment and surface.

His first solo show, “Divisions” which was inspired by his realization of his first taste of a professional environment that was filled with so much segregation and cliques.  Always, his art would be products of personal circumstances and reflections experiences at a certain time. Effectively, his work is a private language, grammar or narrative is known only to him.

To Herrera, the personal will always be the key themes, context and wisdom of his art always capturing moments of candor and sincerity. Naming exhibition titles and even works after his personal situations, they are bent on life reflections, his triumphs, his pains, his damages and interests.  Although he believes that artists and the creative individuals should have some kind of faith as a stimulus to live and act, he believes that experience is sole driver of his creativity.  They are imprints of his journey as an artist and as a person.   They are not triggered by his social surroundings but more so the weigh and the effects of his own experiences that he amplifies on canvas.

Music, as both ritual and experience, also plays part of his creative life and his sustained process in artmaking.  In fact, he initially opted to be trained in the Conservatory of Music at the University of Santo Tomas (UST).  But he would live a musical life playing as drummer to various bands. Later his musical inclinations would have a special attention in his third solo exhibition which was inspired his inclination being musician along with his favorite songs.

In terms of artmaking process, he is inclined to mix and develop his own paint with the use of modeling paste + pigment.  This DIY approach to him is already an inherent and early part of his creative choices which to him verily defines the textures and colors of his work.  

Herrera as an artist committedly seeks freedom in his expressions and nowhere else does this become available to him than his abstraction as a visual language and style. Hence, this has been decidedly his already fixed frame and style of artistic production.

His influences include Bernardo Pacquing because of the palpable sense of freedom which is gleaned from his work as well as Cy Twombly and national artist, Jose Joya.
