- 548 W 28th Street, Suite 540, New York, NY 10001 - phone: 212 219 3183.
- from October 30th to November 24th, Tuesday - Saturday 12 - 6.
- receptions: Thursday Nov. 1st, 4-8 PM & Saturday Nov. 24th, 1-5 PM.
This show of recent work invites the viewer to contemplate alienation, anonymity, and the struggle for authenticity and visibility in a group-think world - themes that are explored in much of Tzinman's work.
Tzinman comments that the visible reality rarely reflects the truth. Under the surface a deeper truth is hidden.
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 complex and deep emotions that lie 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/philosophical concepts.
