Jodi Gerbi is a representational oil painter living in New York who depicts the human resilience through her contemporary realism portrayals of garbage, trash cans, and drain pipes found in her daily life. She treats her contemporary figurative artwork in a similar way. Her subjects are caught sleeping on the subway or hunched over exhausted similar to the discarded objects she captures in the garbage and streets of New York.
Jodi has earned an MFA from the New York Academy of Art and a BFA from Syracuse University. Her work has been shown at the Zhou B Art Center in Chicago, Sotheby’s and the Flowers Gallery in New York as well as Fort Works Art in Texas. She currently paints at Reis Studios in Long Island City, New York.
