Jules de Balincourt "Blue Hours" @ Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac. Paris

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 15, 2014
A long-awaited event to start the new season: the third solo exhibition of works by Jules de Balincourt. His show, in our gallery in the Marais, has the beguiling title Blue Hours and includes fifteen new paintings. This ‘Michel Houellebecq’ of painting, as Jean-Marc Bustamante calls him, explores private themes that evoke architecture, travel, human migrations and artificial places, in a floating, idealised and escapist atmosphere with hints of a pervading vulnerability.

In-Progress: Beau Stanton "TENEBRAS LUX" @ The Crypt, Bristol, England

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 15, 2014
Good friend Beau Stanton is in Bristol, England right now, teaming up with another Jux friend Andy Phipps and his gallery space in the South for a new grouping of Stanton's work, "Tenebras Lux." We have some progress shots at the moment, and here's the lowdown on the body of work: Tenebras Lux is a new body of work inspired by the imagery and techniques found in sacred spaces.

the work of Vincent Marcinelli

Photography // Monday, September 15, 2014
Photographer Vincent Marcinelli curates reality to narrate the stories of his subjects. These individuals come from a whirlwind of backgrounds but share a common and powerful trait of youthfulness. Marcinelli’s portraits are precise and well lit, using a large format camera to clearly present each personality. These moments of self-reflection seem to serve both the photographer and subject, one of his work’s strongest attributes.

Illustration // Monday, September 15, 2014
We love these large-scale charcoal illustrations by Rotterdam, Netherlands-based artist Anouk Griffioen. A connection with fashion can be seen in her work through the clothing and the models' faces and bodies. This influence saw a turning point when she collaborated with fashion photographer Anne Marieke van Drimmelen. Ever since Anouk has seen fashion play a more visible role in her art.
