Kahn + Selesnick – Adrift on the Hourglass Sea

The dynamic duo, artists Kahn and Selesnick have been quietly feeding the internet with their new visual suite entitled “Adrift on the Hourglass Sea”. For those unfamiliar with K+H, they merge graphic design, storytelling, CGI and photography into large scale multi-piece epics. I had the pleasure of seeing one of their previous exhibitions up close and personal last year and mere web images do not do them justice. They are meticulous and worthy of hours of gazing. As with previous collections, this one also features wide-screen panoramics, which can see in full detail on their website. I was especially drawn to these character and structure vignettes, set against a Mars-red sky. They have a monolithic quality, and also are strikingly emotional even for their alien tone. The beauty of K+H’s work is their ability to inform with enough of a story but allow the viewer to fill in the remaining holes with whatever their imagination can muster.
