LICArtists Member To Exhibit Duality

Exhibition of LICArtists member Max Tzinman’s recent work, Duality, will open at Atlantic Gallery on April 8. Atlantic Gallery announced the opening of Duality – a show of recent work by LICArtists member, Max Tzinman.
This show by Tzinman, whose studio is in Long Island City, explores the drama of the duality within us all, and its link to the mindless escape within the mob.
Tzinman perceives that unwillingness to engage with the complexity of duality (life/death, conflicting instincts) can lead to a lack of self-awareness and individual consciousness. The result is a sea of humanity sleepwalking through life and a drift towards groupthink: “When everyone thinks the same, nobody is thinking,” – Walter Lippmann.
Most of the artwork starts digitally, printed on canvas, or on 3D printer. Tzinman merges painting, photography, collage, and assemblage, to produce a series of deep, mysterious and disturbing images.
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 the Los Angeles Center For Digital Art (LACDA), The Center for Fine Art Photography in Ft. Collins, Colorado, Brooklyn Art Gallery (BAG), Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital Art Gallery, Moss Rehab/Einstein, Atlantic Gallery in Chelsea, Museum of Computer Art (MOCA), and the William Penn Foundation.
The Atlantic Gallery is located at 548 W. 28th St., Suite 540, New York, NY 10001, 212-219-3183. The show will run from April 8 to May 3, with an opening reception on Thursday, April 10, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and closing reception: Saturday, May 3, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
