Gershon Kreimer

Gershon Kreimer (U.S.A., b. Lima, Peru) lives and works in Los Angeles. He graduated

from New York University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

His photographic nudes - stark, unadorned and unabashedly austere; ensure that the

emotional intensity of every image remains intact, integral and entirely reflective of both

Kreimer and the model. Kreimer’s images, stripped away of any distracting adornments,

are testimonies and tributes to the power of a singular emotion.

Kreimer’s work is in numerous private collections in the cities of Los Angeles, New York,

London, Miami, and Lima-Peru.

ARTIST STATEMENT

In my search for visual forms, I consolidate the exchange between my

personal gaze as an artist, and the narrative contained within the subject.

What I look for in this narrative is the representation of not only a catharsis,

but also the revelation of a hidden identity within the person I am

photographing. It is not the pose, product of training or repetition.

Starting with my first series Domesticities and Void, I concentrate on the

body as a fundamental place where light, matter, and subject coalesce,

inciting an disconcerting reaction in the viewer. This propelled me to further

explore perception and its alterations in series like Distortions, Safe

Images, Totems, and Blindness, where the abstracted subjects seem to

acquire an almost cultic presence. Veils proposes the hiding of either the

identity or the body as an aesthetic of censorship of both.

My method is simple: to stimulate irrationality in gestures, in pauses, and in

poses. It is almost the same process as with a performance, but above all, it

is the final result of automatism. The pauses in my latest installments of Void

reflect the absence of control or its natural opposite; control in its most

extreme. The results are surprising not only for the camera but also for the

subject. By approaching nudity as a narrative of abstraction, this process

ideally brings us to a point at which the lack of control produces a nil in

sense, and in language: A point in which the body is a sign of itself and

nothing more.

Instantaneous videos like Untitled and Integration/Disintegration present an

instance where stillness and movement explore the absence and presence of

the body. The manipulated body becomes an abstract loop without

beginning, middle, or end. In Times Like These, I turn the body into a

historical allegory that reflects my personal anxieties. These anxieties have

also taken me to reflect on other extremes.

It is in No place, but here I am, that I enter a different perception of time

and space within the more solitary environment of skulls and psychiatric

prescription pills. The gaze upon the body gradually loses its human form,

finding equally personal forms in a new narrative of the inanimate. In these

simple still-lifes, I would like to understand that the temporality of life is not

exhausted in the contours of the body, and even less so in its memory. It

constitutes the beginning of a process whose end we are yet to discover.
