Never Ends

October 16 - November 13, 2010

Steve Turner Contemporary is pleased to present NEVER ENDS, a series of new paintings, a sculptural installation and a video by Pearl C. Hsiung. Never Ends reflects on the perpetual nature of creation and the paradoxical mechanisms of death and destruction that make it possible. Hsiung creates a surreal realm where humanity may be absent, yet where absurd traces still linger. In a protean universe, Hsiung envisions landscapes that may be created as eternity unfolds. This is Hsiung's second solo exhibition at Steve Turner Contemporary.

Born in Taiwan in 1973, Pearl C. Hsiung received her BA at the University of California, Los Angeles (1997) and her MFA at Goldsmiths College, London (2004). Hsiung has had solo exhibitions at Max Wigram Gallery, London (2006) and Steve Turner Contemporary, Los Angeles (2007). Hsiung's work has been featured in group exhibitions including Humor Us at the Los Angeles Municipal Arts Gallery (2007); 2006 California Biennial and Disorderly Conduct: Art in Tumultuous Times (2008) both at the Orange County Museum of Art; 2006 Busan Biennale, South Korea and Expander, Royal Academy of Fine Arts, London (2005).

Nature Morte

October 16 - November 13, 2010

Steve Turner Contemporary is pleased to present NATURE MORTE, an installation featuring new ceramic vessels and paintings by Roger Herman.

Herman, who is widely known for making large scale neo-expressionist paintings and woodcuts, will exhibit a group of small paintings and painted and glazed ceramic vessels in a range of sizes. The artist draws from a wide array of sources including Goya, Japanese Manga, Posada prints, pornography and wrestling magazines. In his largest ceramic works, these varied sources overlap throughout the vessel.
Born in 1947 in Saarbrucken, Roger Herman studied at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Karlsruhe before moving to Los Angeles in 1981. Over the past thirty years, he has shown his works nationally and internationally with solo exhibitions at Susanne Vielmetter Projects, Los Angeles; Ace Gallery, Los Angeles and New York; Ursula Krinzinger, Vienna; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the La Jolla Art Museum; the Santa Monica Museum of Art; and the San Francisco Art Institute. He has been a professor in the art department at UCLA since 1985.
