Simen Johan – Until The Kingdom Comes

Photographs created by Simen Johan over the past several years are on view at the Yossi Milo Gallery in NYC.

For the ongoing series, “Until the Kingdom Comes”, Johan travels widely and captures images of both wild and captive animals. The photographic data is transposed into a digital studio where the artist arranges his subjects in a variety of geographic settings. The results display unlikely cohabitants in atypical environments.

The striking reality of these impossibilities galvanizes the viewer with the feeling of a unique exclusive. Similarly fantastic properties are exhibited in Simen Johan’s taxidermy sculptures (not pictured) which are also at the gallery. If you are in the city head over and check out something wild.
