|Atlantic Gallery is pleased to present Max Tzinman's show "The Cannibal Eye, Part Two".
This show of recent work includes "The Mob Project" - a series of video and still images that explores the personal search for significance in a group-think world - a theme that runs through much of Tzinman's work. His images invite the viewer to contemplate existential isolation, despair, and the human struggle for authenticity and visibility.
He explains: "I am not a photographer or a conventional painter but an image storyteller. I am not trying to freeze the moment with a beautiful image, but to transform it to reveal the disturbing emotions that are buried beneath the surface".
Max Tzinman was born in Romania and lived in Israel and Canada, immersing himself in a multitude of cultures that influenced his artistic philosophy. Formerly an architect, since his move to New York City he has returned to his first love, art. He has recently participated in art and photography shows at LACDA (Los Angeles Center For Digital Art), The Center for Fine Art Photography (Ft. Collins, CO), BAG (Brooklyn Art Gallery), Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital Art Gallery, Moss Rehab/Einstein, Atlantic Gallery, MOCA (Museum of Computer Art), and the William Penn Foundation.
