About the Artist:

Jerry Shevick has been taking photographs for the last 30 years, and began printing and selling his work over the last 20. He has predominantly worked in black and white, but with the 2012 opening of And the Past Reared Its Head, he has plunged with both feet into color. This is an ongoing series that takes vintage slides from Jerry’s past, as well as from many others, and through a process of re-shooting and re-imagining the photograph, looks at our collective past. In many ways, these photographs echo themes that always seem to thread through Jerry’s work: quiet moments that pull you into a story–--whether yours or one imagined. The work was introduced in a solo show in Malibu and has since been selected for The Topanga Fine Art Gallery’s Juried Exhibition, is currently part of the Jane Deering Gallery’s Flat File Project, gained Jerry entry into the Los Angeles Arts Association and will be seen in another solo exhibition in Santa Monica, California’s hale ARTSPACE Gallery in August of 2013. The work has been used in magazine layouts and is also hung in the retail space, Loft 13 in Silver Lake, California.
