Pots, 2005, Installation view

This exhibition explored the work of Roger Herman, acclaimed expressionist painter, as he developed his interest in ceramic as the ground on which to explore his gestural draftsmanship. Roger Herman: Pots was the first exhibition in the United States to feature his humorous and bold work in clay that playfully referenced the history of the medium–from the traditional Japanese teapot to the Greek vase. Herman’s pots come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and finishes, revealing his commitment to extensive experimentation on the wheel and in the kiln, and are decorated with painted images derived from manga comics, advertisements, porn magazines and films, as well as from a host of art historical sources.
