Jeffrey Nemeroff


Born in Chicago, Jeffrey Nemeroff was raised near Los Angeles where he began studying art at an early age. After obtaining a BFA in art and design, he continued an education in painting at Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles and began exhibiting his work. Over the past twenty years, Jeffrey has been included in group and solo 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— and his abstract and representational compositions can be found in collections throughout the United States, Europe, Britain, Russia and the Middle East. He currently lives and works in San Francisco near Ocean Beach.


Throughout my life I’ve been continuously drawn to the ocean, and capturing its power and vastness—as well as its vulnerability—is what drives this series of seascapes. With compositions at various levels of abstraction, I’m interested in expressing a feeling or memory rather than a literal representation of the place itself, and that brief moment when the relationship between water, earth and sky will never be the same again. A limited color palette further disassociates the work from reality, emphasizing that this experience—and my fading memory of it—is as impermanent as the oceans themselves.
