Opening Reception: Friday, July 22, 6 pm – 8 pm
Jill Kerwick is a NJ-based artist who creates staged photographs that are disarming as well as whimsical. She assembles and photographs 3-D tableaux that juxtapose paintings—her own, her late father’s and thrift-store finds—with antique ladies’ head vases and live animals. Using Photoshop, she collages images of her own body into the compositions. The resulting works convey a sense of wonder, surprise, and humor.
