Statement

The New York Times' Critic Benjamin Genocchio wrote on March 5, 2009: "Among other outstanding photographs are Aimee Hertog's wickedly funny 'Hamptons Fun v. Iowa Flood,' in which the artist has digitally collaged imagery of people swimming in the Hamptons into flooded urban landscape scenes from Iowa. The juxtaposition is so incongruous and silly that you can't help but laugh." The article pertains to the show at City Without Walls in Newark.

Aimee Hertog, originally from Denver, Colorado, received her B.A. from Bennington College and her MFA at Montclair State University. She has been in several exhibitions in the New York City area including two one-person shows with Chashama. In 2011, Aimee won Best in Show at Wide Open 2 at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition, chosen by Guggenheim curator Nat Trotman. Her work is in the collection of the Newark Public Library, among other organizations. In 2013 she exhibited her work in two shows in England. She has curated group shows in Brooklyn - Captured Transience at the Trestle Gallery in 2012 and Toxicity at the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center in 2013.
