Jill Weisberg: She Comes First

IMG_0106

Jill Weisberg’s site specific installation “She Comes First” at Butter Gallery in Miami explores visual distortion, the meaning of the original image and femininity.

Using large format black and white reproductions of vintage adult magazines, Weisberg alters and appropriates photography by painting over the images to create bold fields of color that partially hide and simultaneously highlight the original photographs, thereby inviting the viewer to engage with multiple layers of imagery, context, commentary, and ideas.
