Jorge Namerow, New York Member Since April 2009 Artist Statement Contemporary painter Jorge Namerow has emerged as one of the most intriguing young artists working today. His work blends the classical ideals of figurative painting with a unique style. The artist states, “Painting for me is very cathartic and is the most articulate way for me to express my passion.” Merging introspection and visual spectacle, Jorge Namerow personal investigations of the figure, spirituality and abstraction possess the power to transform today’s ideals of elegance and sensuality. The process of transforming paint and other materials into images continues to compel and challenge me. Painting fills me with a sense of well-being and humility, and has proven to be a satisfying way for me to translate my visual ideas into a physical reality.
