Stunning photographic works by Simen Johan. The press release for his just recently closed exhibition reads, "In his ongoing series Until the Kingdom Comes, begun in 2004 and first shown at the gallery in 2006, Simen Johan depicts a natural world hovering between reality, fantasy and nightmare. Merging traditional photographic techniques with digital methods, Johan's images are crafted over time and may include a synthesis of landscapes from various geographical locations and animals photographed in captivity or in the wild."
Mindy Bray alerted me to his work. Mindy has been working at a residency in Aspen for the past few weeks and has been posting about her work and experience there on a blog called Ten Weeks.
