IN L.A.: Alvaro Ilizarbe @ Martha Otero Gallery

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 21, 2013
We recently stopped by Martha Otero Gallery for the opening reception of Alvaro Ilizarbe’s latest exhibition, “Surveying.” For this exhibition, Ilizarbe showcases new paintings and a site-specific installation. He depicts landscape imagery on topographical tectonic plate shaped panels. The amorphous sculptural wall structures lead through a passageway of patterned wallpapers portraying the elements in the earth’s stratum. Photos and more after the jump…

Underwater, Dramatic Photography by Tomohide Ikeya

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 21, 2013
We have shown some stunning underwater photography on the site before, but these delicately, darkly staged works by Tomohide Ikeya are some of the most bizarre and wonderful we have seen to date. The Japanese photographer has turned the her hobby of scuba diving into a conceptual body of work.

Lucy McLauchlan: New Murals in the Azores

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 21, 2013
In the Azores? On the Azores? On the Azores Islands? In the Azores volcanic island chain? We are struggling with this at the moment. Regardless, we began this post to show what UK-based Lucy McLauchlan created while in the Azores this past July for the Walk & Talk Azores festival. Her work, as you can see, fit seamlessly amongst the aged buildings and narrow streets.

Vault // Wednesday, August 21, 2013
There is no question, we like the works of Pat Perry. We like that he shoots photos, paints, and documents his travels in his sketchbook.

Last month, Juxtapoz had the fortunate opportunity to attended Wall therapy in Rochester, NY. We can’t help but smile when reminiscing over our experience there and all the wonderful people we met.

The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 21, 2013
When we posted Patricia Pacinini's giant "Skywhale" hot air balloon we got to thinking about possible custom balloons and wondered why someone hadn't made an "Up" balloon yet. It turns out, someone has! The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is in its 35th year and over four days more than 150 hot air baloons floated across the city.

The Work of Heeseop Yoon

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Heeseop Yoon begins her process by photographing jumped and cluttered workspaces, basements, and storage spaces "where everything is jumbled and time becomes ambiguous without the presence of people." From those photographs Yoon constructs and beings to draw freehand without erasing, correcting mistakes with double or multiple lines, which "reflect how my perception has changed over time."

Moses Hacmon Photographs Water in Motion

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Israeli artist Moses Hacmon has found a way to capture water in motion through an analog photographic technique using a fluid film made out of nanoparticles that retains a liquid layer of iron. This registers the water's movement first and then allows it to be imprinted on any surface in any shape. The resulting photographic negative is then transformed into a positive image. The process is the result of eleven years of studying and investigating the physical characteristics of the flow of water. Watch a video after the jump...
