Lora Schlesinger Gallery presents Silence is a Thing I See, new still-life paintings by Gershom.
Gershom has been exploring and navigating the diverse world of still-life painting, ranging from sumptuous abundance and riches to the traditional vanitas of life .Through paint, his objects tell stories captured through shape, texture, light and color. Each painting is a veneration of each object, that invokes the viewer to look more closely at the objects often overlooked.
Gershom was born in the Netherlands. He lived in Amsterdam for many years. He has a PhD in Psychology and Epidemology. He moved to Los Angeles to study sculpture and painting at Otis College of Art and Design.
