New Member, Paul Forte

Hera Gallery is pleased to welcome Paul Forte to the gallery. A nationally recognized artist who lives and works in Wakefield; working with visual metaphors, Forte has been an active participant in the gallery prior to his membership. His work "uses a variety of cultural artifacts as well as the occasional find from the natural world.  [His] work brings these things to life with an economy of means that relinquishes neither depth of feeling nor conceptual complexity." Hera looks forward to working with Paul, and having his creativity and sensibilities reflected in upcoming exhibitions.
