Published by Seraphin Gallery
One of the founding members of the California Assemblage movement in the 1950s (alongside Wallace Berman, Bruce Conner and Jess), George Herms uses the most weather-worn, battered, junked-up materials for his assemblages, forging a style that was to greatly influence Pop art in America and presage Nouveau Realisme in France. Herms pushes the limits of assemblage to exciting extremes, making gentle, sometimes funny statements. Then and Now surveys his earliest documented work alongside recent works, and is the most substantial publication on Herms.
