Surreal worlds that don’t exist – and probably shouldn’t. That is what Oregon artist Jim Kazanjian creates in his intriguing and oddly disturbing prints.
Jim Kazanjian has been a commercial CGI artist for the past 16 years in television and more recently in game production. He describes his work as follows:
“I am interested in a kind of “entropic” image, an image that has the capacity to de-familiarize itself. My current work is an attempt to unravel the photograph and play with established notions of time, space, and the understanding of what gives things context. Through fragmentation and re-composition of the photographic space, the non-linear nature of reading the image is folded in on itself. The structure of the photograph is unwound and reshuffled. This reshaping becomes an iterative process that spurs the generation of something altogether different.”
