As a self-taught NYC native, Jill Gewirtz was exposed early in her life to photography through her father who owned color laboratories in New York City and worked for pioneers such as Scavullo, Hiro, Meyerowitz and Avedon. Inspired by Surrealism and Found art throughout her life, her polaroid, xerox, and ink jet transfers reflect a painterly approach to photography. Gewirtz uses her every day urban landscape as inspiration for collage, street photography and still life images. Gewirtz’ work has been published in Lenscratch, Fraction Magazine, and Bartelby Snopes. Her work has been exhibited in museums such as Marin Museum, Marietta Cobb, Masur, Katonah, Monmouth, Attleboro, Griffin and Hockaday Museums of Art. In 2012, one of her photos earned ‘Best Urban Landscape’ for the online magazine Phoozl, judged by Joel Meyerowitz. Along with her work in private collections she also has work in the permanent collection at the Museum of the City of New York. In 2016, two of Gewirtz’ photographs were included in the Berlin Biennial. Gewirtz has a doctorate in Psychology and her subject matter often draws on her interests in people and Abstract Expressionism. Her most recent works include abstract photography, inspired by Rauschenberg and Rothko.
