Venue 4

Montse Herrera


Malvarosa, 262 Portobello High Street

Through paintings and works on paper, Montse searches for ways to make tangible the intangible. She explores the depiction of space and atmosphere, as well as relationships between landscape, body, feelings and memory.

Working with acrylic, oil, graphite and collaged paper onto canvas, her process involves overlapping layers of varying transparencies, adding different shades to create a new set of tonalities. The influence of the landscape is present in all her works, although it is not her aim to represent recognisable locations, tthe colours and organic shapes are her principle interest. She sees her paintings as windows into the viewer’s memories, creating an interaction or dialogue between work and person.


Originally from Barcelona where I studied Mural Painting at La Llotja Arts & Craft College and Fine Arts at the Barcelona University, for the last 6 years I ’ve been based in Edinburgh. My works have been exhibited in Paris, Herne, Barcelona and the UK.
