My latest series of paintings is inspired by the Northern California coastline.
Jeffrey Nemeroff is an abstract and representational artist based in San Francisco, California. His latest series explores not only the power and vastness of the ocean, but its vulnerability as well. With these works, he's interested in capturing the memory or feeling of a place rather than a literal representation of the place itself, and that moment when the relationship between the water, earth and sky is never quite the same again. Gestural movements and the use of a variety of tools—such as rags, knives, cardboard, wood, paint sticks—help express the unpredictableness of nature itself.
After obtaining a BFA, Nemeroff continued his education in painting at Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles and began exhibiting his work. While honing his fine art skills, he also enjoyed a successful career as the artistic director Architectural Digest magazine. Over the past twenty-five years, Nemeroff’s work has been included in exhibitions in the United States and Asia—from a group show at the Asian Art Museum in Fukuoka, Japan, to a solo show in New York’s famous Fuller Building. His work can be found in collections throughout the United States—including the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Nashville, Florida— as well as Britain, Europe, Russia and the Middle East.
