Howard Sherman, ‘Oxygen Sucker #25’, 2017, The Watermill Center: Benefit Auction 2017

Howard Sherman’s typically human-scale canvases carry traces of his background in cartooning, offsetting the loud, raw power of his aggressive paint strokes with a playful sense of humor. His smaller works on paper show an intuitive use of material in a distilled yet assertive manner. Sherman was featured in a solo traveling exhibition originating at the Art Museum of Southeast Texas. His work is in several museum collections and is on permanent display at Bush Intercontinental Airport. Sherman’s work appears in the 2010 book Texas Artists Today. Rice University is now collecting his personal artifacts for their research center. Sherman lives in New York City and Houston. —Courtesy of The Watermill Center
