Ariel Herman

My art stems from my fascination with the chaos and excitement that was part of the 1960s.

I seek to incorporate energy and vibrant colors into mixed media pieces that dazzle the eye and ensnare the senses, drawing inspiration from the political, social and economic events that transpire in the times I live.

Art is a powerful medium which can transcend the boundaries between the natural world and man. Every day people walk the earth without fully taking in its intrinsic value. My artwork is meant to stage an eye opening revelation of the effects of modernization on human interaction, with both each other and the natural world. I seek to question human knowledge, investigating the imagery that people are drawn to everyday. Through the use of plexiglass glass I try to convey these ideas, playing off of the unique transmission of light through its surface.
