DESCRIPTION

English Kills Gallery is pleased to present New Paintings by Jim Herbert, an exhibition of large scale, representational works derived from explicitly pornographic photos sourced from internet searches on the artist’s Blackberry.

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.

These newest paintings for English Kills are a departure from the classical references in last year’s exhibition by Herbert, with less emphasis placed on the development of landscape and deep space and a more dominant focus placed on figuration and abstracted backgrounds.

Jim Herbert: New Paintings will open at English Kills Gallery in Bushwick on Saturday, September 10, 2011 with an artist’s reception from 6-9pm.
