I wanted to showcase the intersection where beauty and sadness meet within these sculptures. This show is for those who’ve lost touch with the magic this world has to offer and for those who still want to see it,” said McKenzie of the show’s title.” by Jim Mckenzie


Sculpture by Jim McKenzie 

Jim McKenzie is an American artist and director based in New York City. His sculptures and paintings often depict surrealist wonderlands occupied by highly saturated characters. He works as a commercial director, designer and animator at Aardman Nathan Love as well as a professor at School of Visual Arts

“Lost Magic”, which features a resin scarecrow sculpture with a phobia of crows, is McKenzie’s debut solo show. McKenzie’s other creations include a variety of fun and playful characters such as a half-racoon, half-unicorn appropriately named “Racoonicorn” as well as a variety of other brightly-hued outcasts. Despite their candy-color coating, the pieces of “Lost Magic” were crafted with a darker undertone in mind.

McKenzie has directed commercials for clients such as National Geographics, Capital One, H&R Block, and has recently helped in the creation of Xifaxan’s mascot, Gut Guy, who made his Super Bowl debut early this February. Follow Jim’s day-to-day art adventures online:

 "The Scarecrow" documents the complete step by step process of creating a character starting from a simple sketch in 2014 to a fully developed gallery show piece in 2016 debuting at Jim Mckenzie's "Lost Magic" at Copro Gallery.

 It's amazing and hypnotizing!
