Roger Herman

Untitled 118


The skull is a motif Roger Herman often returns to in his work, continuing its use as a momento mori throughout the canon of western art history. He enjoys the irony that his quick, expressive brushstrokes will indefinitely preserve a message of impermanence.

Roger Herman


L.A. artist, Herman was born and educated in Germany. He moved to California in 1977 where he started working with canvases. Painted with a loose, colorful hand, they managed to be simultaneously expressive and conceptual, with traces of Georg Baselitz and Anselm Kiefer. Herman was recognized as the West Coast parallel of eighties neo-Expressionist movement. Gagosian quickly represented him and positioned him as the California counterpart to David Salle and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
