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 in Film. After a brief period in New York City as a lighting technician; he shifted towards production in independent film, television, and live network news broadcasting.


In 2012 Gershon changed course to fully pursue photography as his primary medium. His interest however, is not the photographic language, but the distortion and eventual elimination of photography from the photograph.


Each of his several series explores a different type of manipulation, making anatomy whether whole, fragmented, distorted, or modified; its primary language.


The body becomes an authentic representation of text, through a provoked and voluntary process of irrationality performed by the subject.


His first solo show: “Proving the Limits of Interpretation: Selected Works 2012-2016”, took place at the AEterna Gallery in Los Angeles in February 2016.


His work. “Grace 2” was included in the offering of “Boys, Boys, Boys” in London; alongside works by Andy Warhol and Wolfgang Tillmans.


Kreimer has participated in various group shows in Los Angeles, and Lima-Peru, as well as several art fairs.


Kreimer’s work is included in numerous private collections in the cities of Los Angeles, New York, London, Miami, Mexico City, and Lima-Peru.

ARTIST STATEMENT

To use the language of photography as little as possible. Only its most basic formalities are sufficient. Nothing must lack poverty.


To provoke a voluntary pre-modern voluntary state of catharsis in the subject. The insides of the subject manifest themselves through the outside: skin-muscles-skeleton.


The mind should be involved as little as possible in the process.
Ad Usum Delphini: When the body is fragmented or hidden by geometry; it assumes the function of text as well as a fence around exposed anatomy, protecting the sensibilities of the viewer.


The geometric shape and the choice of color should be simple to accentuate the hidden. Everything framed by a strictly formal presentation.
