> DESCRIPTION

We will be closed December 20 - 24th, resuming normal business hours on Tuesday, December 27th. 

George Herms will briefly speak about his work at 3:45pm, December 3

Coming out of the Beat Generation of the 1950s, Herms is recognized -- along with Ed Kienholz, Wallace Berman and Bruce Conner -- as a leading figure of California Assemblage. His work combines aged, stained, and rusted detritus, always rubber stamped with the four letters, L-O-V-E (the E printed backwards). As the critic Robert L. Pincus observed, the stamps are “a linguistic hieroglyph, as it were, of his ambitions for art. Collective judgment deems ugly those things Herms recycles as beautiful.” Hermsʼ second exhibition at Craig Krull Gallery will include works on paper from the 1960s through the present, varying in mediums from ink and watercolor to stamps and collaged found paper remnants. Herms will also be featured in corresponding Pacific Standard Timemuseum exhibitions, including “Greetings from L.A.: Artists and Publics 1945–1980” at the Getty Research Institute.
