The Collection to Show at Magnet

In the course of his art endeavors documenting the human experience he has created a few sexually oriented paintings with a consistent theme that love is inclusive, not exclusive. Most of his other work mostly focused on artistic development of materials rather than subject matter. This body of work  moved away from traditional ways of working materials. In 2009 princeHerman was requested to create a series of Stained Glass which highlighted his craftsmanship in time honored techniques. The challenge was elevating the craft back to its roots as fine art. He chose to do this by using subject matter not usually seen in Stained Glass, explicit sexual content. Because it is explicitly sexual he calls this collection Stained Glass Pornography, which also presents the challenge of elevating pornography to fine art. The show provokes thought about medium, subject matter, and context.
