Der deutsche Maler und Keramikkünstler Roger Herman, der seit den späten 70er Jahren in Kalifornien lebt und arbeitet, erforscht in seinen Arbeiten weiterhin ein breites Spektrum an Stilen. Beeinflusst durch den Expressionismus ist Hermans Arbeit auch sehr referenziell und stützt sich auf sein kunsthistorisches Wissen und „großzügigen Sinn für Humor“. Ohne ein bestimmtes Thema als Schwerpunkt, konzentriert sich Herman auf die Farbe selbst und sagt über seinen Prozess: „Das Thema ist immer malen." Roger Herman hat in den USA und in Europa viel gezeigt. Einzelausstellungen sind die George Lawson Gallery, San Francisco, Ace Contemporary Exhibitions, Los Angeles und New York, die Larry Gagosian Gallery, Los Angeles, das Santa Monica Kunstmuseum, das Museo del Arte Contemporana, Mexiko-Stadt, das Los Angeles County Museum of Art, unter anderen. Seit 1990 ist er an der Fakultät für Malerei und Zeichnen an der UCLA tätig.
