Roger Herman

German painter and ceramic artist Roger Herman, who has lived and worked in California since the late seventies, continues to explore a broad range of styles within his work. Influenced by expressionism, Herman’s work is also highly referential, drawing on his art historical knowledge and “generous sense of humor.” With no particular theme as a focus, Herman concentrates instead on the paint itself, saying of his process, “the subject is always painting.”

Roger Herman has shown widely in the United States and Europe. Solo exhibitions include George Lawson Gallery, San Francisco, Ace Contemporary Exhibitions, Los Angeles and New York, Larry Gagosian Gallery, Los Angeles, the Santa Monica Museum of Art, Museo del Arte Contemporana, Mexico City, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among others. Herman has been on faculty for the department of painting and drawing at UCLA since 1990.
