“MARCO HILL & REBECCA NURICK–mystification” through March 15



Feb. 1-March 15 2015

Opening Reception Saturday Feb.7 5-7pm

Jed Williams Gallery is pleased to present the recent photographic works of Rebecca Nurick and Marco Hill, two of the most unique and fascinating emerging photographers working in Philadelphia.

Rebecca Nurick and Marco Hill both feature photographs that use unique production methods andadd something ineffable to our interpretation of a scene, landscape, cityscape, figure. Their images are both mysterious and intense, almost excessively, but seductively so.

Their work exemplifies photography as something that can transform, transcend and maybe even redeem aspects of daily life we often overlook.

Rebecca Nurick will be exhibiting a range of images, including architectural, street/documentary, and figurative work. Nurick has exhibited her work at the Philadelphia Open Studio Tours, City Arts Salon at Sharktown, the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, and in an installation at the international terminal at the Philadelphia International Airport.

In Nurick’s words, “ I find myself gravitating to photography, as it allows me to capture an image that is interesting to me and alter it in a way that can give it a hyper-real quality while still maintaining its true nature. The elevation of the ordinary is thrilling to me. The creative post-production of a photo is as enjoyable to me as the act of capturing the original subject.”

Marco Hill is an emerging photographer whose images convey a feeling a timelessness married with an intimacy that highlights the seriousness and the connection which he brings to every subject matter he captures. Seemingly anodyne, everyday subject matter can suddenly gain wonderfully impactful meaning. Hill, originally from southern Virginia, is able to utilize great technical skills yet never allow them to overwhelm his ability to bring great emotion and the feeling of simplicity to his imagery. He has paired a comprehensive knowledge of photography and love of the masters of the tradition with a humility that has him constantly learning and sharing his insights with the viewers of his work.

Hill states: “I roam the streets of the city looking for things that are unusual or things that I think would ordinarily go unnoticed….I actually got started in art as a musician, but after i found a love for photography the camera replaced the guitar as my instrument of choice. I call my approach to photography playing the blues with a camera.

Creating artwork is a practice through which one can contemplate, experiment, and uncover insights. When the brush hits the canvas, it’s as if time stops and the artist is invited to sway harmoniously with the universe.  Each brush stoke layered upon the next to create an object radiating hope, compassion, love, and happiness – reflecting our true nature back to us. My goal is to create art that wakes the viewer to higher and more beautiful states of being than our common experience permits.”- John Speaker
