Benito Huerta (b.1952) has been creating artwork in Texas since the 1970s. Significantly influenced by Pop Art and Conceptual Art, in addition to the Chicano movement, his paintings and prints frequently deal with the comedy, tragedy, and absurdity present in our world. Huerta’s imagery is appropriated from Western Art history, film and television, or inspired by rock and roll lyrics. INTERMISSION presented work from the last two decades of his distinguished artistic career.
