Los Angeles-based artist Roger Herman brings his painterly ceramic vessels and plates to New York for Blumen – a solo show at Carpenters Workshop Gallery. The exhibition is comprised of new ceramic vessels shown alongside a monumental installation of Herman’s decorative plates.
Blumen showcases Roger Herman’s practice over the last 40 years working at the nexus of art and design, featuring an array of his large hand-crafted ceramic vessels.
Herman comments: “I have a constant dialogue with me as a painter on canvas and a painter working on ceramics. Using the Vessel as canvas. The interesting part of making ceramics for me is that you can’t control the process as much as with painting. In the ceramics the element of surprise and the unknown is important. Painting is control, ceramic for me is letting go of that control. The best things happen often by accident.”
