body of work

ROGER HERMAN Roger Herman has been called one of LA’s ‘best kept secrets’, but that’s hard to swallow. Since he arrived here from Germany in the 80’s, Herman’s work has attracted notice like a lightening rod. He is known for massive wood-block prints, lush and wild large-scale abstract paintings, and organic, erotic pottery. Herman’s style can be caricaturized as non-conventional, not concerned with perfection, but just true expression. Herman’s SIlverLake studio, (where he lives and works) is an architectural dream conceived in collaboration with Frederick Fisher AIA , in the shadow of Dodger Stadium. His work is widely collected by Malibu collectors including Eli Broad, who keeps a beach house on Carbon Beach, The Coanzoneris, and Michael and Kim McCarty.Richard Telles Shown in the US and Europe, with solo exhibitions that include Richard Telles Fine Art / Los Angeles for his ceramics; LACMA, MOCA and the Gruenewald Center at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. Herman has been on faculty for the department of painting and drawing at UCLA since 1990. Roger Herman has a show up thru June at ACME gallery in Los Angeles http://www.rogerherman.net
