Roger Herman, a German painter and ceramic artist, has lived and worked in California since the late seventies. Influenced by expressionism, Herman’s work is also highly referential, drawing on his art historical knowledge and generous sense of humor. With a focus on the female form here, Herman concentrates on the paint itself, saying of his process, “the subject is always painting.”
Roger Herman has shown widely in the United States and Europe and is represented by Richard Telles Gallery, Los Angeles, where he is exhibiting new work through the month of January. Herman has been on faculty for the department of painting and drawing at UCLA since 1990.
