The still force of nature is captured in Herma’s work and immediately reflects the impression I had on our first meeting many years ago in Milan. I remember, as if it were yesterday, her charismatic presence. A woman with willpower, both strong and fragile at the same time.
Throughout the years Herma’s strong hands revealed her passion for sculpture as well as for drawing stylised fragments of nature. Herma observes nature in a very intimate, contemplative way.
Her sculptures and drawings can be seen as still landscapes.They leave a deep impression of tranquillity. Her work is physical, poetic and fragile. It is precisely these characteristics that I recognised in Herma 30 years ago in Milan and they are the basis of our lasting friendship.
