Simen Johan

Work by Simen Johan, Original Text by Hugo Fortin, 2023
Simen Johan will release a new self-titled monograph in March of this year.The volume includes an introduction by Hugo Fortin, and contains key works from the artist’s recent bodies of work. Johan's images explore the natural world through the artist's signature process of combining parts taken from a multitude of images to create a single climactic scene. The resulting images are theatrical, seemingly staged depictions of animals and natural features, imbued with a human quality through sheer dramatic gravity.
