Jim Kazanjian Last Weekend

Jim Kazanjian Last Weekend

It's so surreal!

Hard to believe how fast time flies. Jim Kazanjian's show here at 23 Sandy ends this Saturday, September 10th. Be sure to catch his surreal photographic compositions before they are gone!
 
This show, titled Anomalies, features six new pieces in continuation of his last solo show in May of 2009. That show led the artist to worldwide acclaim including a feature article on Gizmodo.com that received over 60,000 visitors in just the first 24hours plus sales to art collectors around the world. His work has also since been featured in such publications as Esquire Russia, Art China and The Atlantic. 

Jim Kazanjian’s surreal landscapes offer phantasmagoric visions of a where-is-this world, defined by impossibly complex architecture and M.C.Escher-esque black-and-white graphics. Inspired by the imaginary realm sof cult author H.P. Lovecraft—whose wild, cosmic short stories set the mold for much of the 20th century’s best science fiction—Kazanjian’s aim is to redress the “misunderstanding that photography has a kind of built-in objectivity…to defamiliarize the familiar.”
