McConnell is an artist and writer from Trenton who mixes analog photography with digital processes to create work that reflects on the human condition and Phillips’ own personal experiences. “Analog Surrealism” is a juxtaposition series where McConnell merges different surrealistic concepts of glitch art with aspects of analog photography. Glitch art is the anesthetization of digital or analog errors, such as artifacts and other bugs.
Director of JKC Gallery, Michael Chovan-Dalton remarked, “We are excited to be premiering the new work of Trenton artist Phillip McConnell in 'Analog Surrealism' at JKC Gallery. McConnell's work is richly layered and thoughtful. His imagery requires contemplation and subtly hints at some of McConnell’s experiences with race, class, and disruptions in his life.”
