Where form meets function

James Herbert’s exhibit at English Kills gallery presents a series of large scale, representational works derived from explicitly pornographic photos sourced from internet searches on the artist’s Blackberry. From the gallery:

In terms of imagery, Herbert’s artistic practice explores the nature of pleasure and the sentimental side of the sexual act in large scale representational paintings derived from explicitly pornographic source material. From this screen-sized reference that offers little detail, Herbert extrapolates the figures, adapting them to a 9’x10’ canvas in compositions reminiscent of a film still.

The exhibit will open September 10 and run through October 16.
