Born in Norway in 1973 and raised in Sweden, artist Simen Johan has lived and worked in New York City since 1992. Johan has received international recognition for his enigmatic large-scale photographs that investigate the often-uneasy relationship between the natural world of animals and the confusion and chaos created by human activity through his hauntingly beautiful scenes of animals seemingly adrift in dreamlike landscapes. Special thanks to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville, Tenn., for their assistance with the exhibition.
The artist reception on September 2 has been cancelled.
The Pollock Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Mon., Tues., Thurs. & Fri.; ; 1-5 p.m. Sat.
