Howard Sherman: When gorillas shoot pigs
October 24 - November 28, 2009
3508 Lake Street, Houston, TX 77098
Dark humor has always been Sherman‘s forte, and here he doesn’t disappoint. When gorillas shoot pigs exhibits a sort of frivolous, yet violent anger. The Houston-based artist’s most recent paintings continue to exhibit his ability to meld historical references with new methods in an explosive, even bombastic fashion, despite a (somewhat) more economical use of visual noise.
