You can live forever in paradise on earth | Brendon Kahn

Today’s reality is guided by competition alongside the fierce longing to ascend into what many call PARADISE.

But what lies in this pursuit are strangely manufactured channels of both sincerity and unsettling moments that make us question our ultimate wishes. These uncomfortable forms of hope, excess, and desire, to LIVE FOREVER, tie us together but also create further separation than ever before in this consummate dance to the finish line.

About Brendon Kahn

Brendon Kahn is a Southwest, USA based visual artist and recent graduate of The California College of the Arts. He follows a path of curiosity through a strange mirage manufactured in the vicinity of contrast and unsettling moments. This magnetism to inexplicable visual elements is closely associated with confusion stemming from the relationship to place in a complex world. Much of his life he has been distanced from his own idea of home and those around him, continuing to view things with an estranged lens. Adopted from Poland, in less than ideal circumstances lead him to never feel fully rooted in any place or social sphere. This biological distance in addition to constant moving during his childhood has fed an amalgamation of thoughts and relationships as to whom lays claim to where and when. [Official Website]

AImagine: the new Era of making Art ?

We are experiencing a turning point; indeed, I would say a revolution in the artistic disciplines, especially those relating to visual art; it is the beginning of a new Era in which the current paradigms will no longer be valid, in which reality will be questioned or modified through alternative realities.
Terra Mater – Ode to My Family  by Marco Castelli

Terra Mater – Ode to My Family by Marco Castelli

Words are not inherently suitable to embrace any even blurred concept of time, and beside all speech being made nowadays around the sense of family, its true nature belongs to the undetectable trace we leave through centuries, and to our relationship with time itself.

Sleepless by Rebecca Sexton Larson
