Thomas Hunter Project Space
930 Lexington Avenue
New York, NY

Through September 28
Reception: September 4, 6-9pm

Thomas Hunter Project Space is proud to present an exhibition of work by Roger Herman. Herman’s ceramic vessels serve as canvasses for the artist’s painting background, where he pairs abstraction with figuration, bright colors with muted tones, drawing on imagery that ranges from art historical tropes to pop culture. Herman (b. Saarbrueken, Germany) lives and works in Los Angeles, where he has been on the faculty of painting and drawing at UCLA since 1990. He has shown extensively in the US and Europe, most recently at Jack Hanley Gallery, New York and Richard Tellis, Fine Art, Los Angeles. Solo exhibitions include the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Santa Monica Museum of Art, and Museo del Arte Contemporana, Mexico City. Many group exhibitions featuring Herman’s work include the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; MoMA P.S. 1, New York; the Walker Art Museum, Minneapolis; the Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio; Museum Ludwig, Saarlouis, Germany; and Art Museum of São Paulo, Brazil. In 2019, Herman will be included in a survey show of contemporary American artists working with ceramics at the National Museum in Sêvres, France. In 2020, he will be included in an exhibition at the Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, France.
