Jill Berelowitz
Lives & Works in London, United Kingdom
Jill Berelowitz is one of London’s most innovative sculptors who is known for her bronze, steel, and optical resin works. Berelowitz studied sculpture with Finnish artist Karin Jaroszynska and later at the Johannesburg School of Art where she learned the technically complex process of lost wax bronze casting. Berelowitz ran her own studio in Durban, working and teaching there before she moved to London in 1976.  With its roots in South Africa, Berelowitz’s work is a meditation on the beauty and timelessness of humankind’s relationship to the earth. Separately, Berelowitz’s works offer their own narratives, but when considered together, become a joyful celebration of the universal beauty of nature, as well as forming a visual autobiography of her life and family. Berelowitz’s work has been exhibited at Sotheby’s, Heathrow Terminal 5, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, and on Cork Street for Rado and Elizabeth Arden. Jill Berelowitz will be presented by SMO Contemporary Art.
