Aimee Hertog

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 Chappell Hertog was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. She received her B.A. from Bennington College and her MFA at Montclair State University. Aimee had two pieces selected from the several thousand entries in the NYU Small Works competition. 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 in BWAC, chosen by Guggenheim curator Nat Trotman. Her work is in the collection of the Newark Public Library, among other organizations.
