For his second solo show at White Noise Gallery, Spanish painter Jesús Herrera Martínez presents a new cycle of works entitled “Taking Care of the Garden of Eden”. Giving his own representation of nature, Jesus reflects on the physical impossibility for the artist to give an objective and detached portrait of reality.
The show is conceived like a botanical garden: an impossible attempt to enclose in a single place the vastness of nature. Built as perfect images of the whole, those places are the synthesis of all the beauty and complexity of creation; there, species from totally different environments can finally coexist.
The viewer will not look at a garden but he will stare at the entire world.
