Please note that the artwork will remain on display noon-2pm Saturday June 3 and Sunday June 4.

Jed Williams Gallery welcomes back Juan Dimida and Jombi Supastar, who have previously shown at Jed Williams Gallery . Jombi first exhibited his mixed media paintings, collages/works on paper in “Jombi Supastar-candy flipping'”, Nov. 1-Dec. 20 2014; and Dimida was actually one the very first artists to show at Jed Williams Gallery (“Juan Dimida/Judy Engle June 28-July 31 2011, along with several events in 2014 where Juan put his funkitudinal electronic music and video/multimedia skills to excellent use!   And, last but not least, we are also very excited to display paintings by James Tafel Shuster.  Shuster has shown throughout the Philadelphia area and currently produces new work in his Germantown studio.  According to Shuster, “The human form and portrait, and especially the personality of any individual, have been main focuses and sources of inspiration in my work. A camera is capable of freezing a person’s image in place, but my paintings strive to allow the image to move and the personality to be the element that is frozen.”

Last weeks to see “mystification”–ends March 15

MARCO HILL and REBECCA NURICK

mystification

Feb. 1-March 15 2015

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.
