Lot description
From the artist's ongoing series Until the Kingdom Comes, Simen Johan's Untitled #136 (Foxes) offers a snapshot of our natural world in eerie repose. In the series, the Norwegian-born artist creates scenes that are at once familiar and otherworldly by first photographing his subjects, a wide variety of animals, at zoos, museums and nature preserves and then digitally altering their habitats, seamlessly re-situating them into new environments. In their new environment, the foxes appear mysteriously human, assuming anthropomorphic postures and facial expressions. Untitled #136 (Foxes), along with the other stitched-together images that comprise the series, therefore offers a paradoxical view of nature that confuses the natural with the artificial.

Framing: Ash Frame, Van Dyke crystals finish; strainer with lap-jointed crossbars; mounted face-in to plexi at GL Laminating; back with Coroplast
