Francesca Pasquali's 3D Straw Sculptures

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 25, 2013
Italian artist Francesca Pasquali cuts plastic draws at varying lengths and arranges them in patterns to create her sculptures. The seemingly simple concept results in a visually captivating and textured landscape. Francesca relates her work with plastic to ideas in the natural world saying, "Observing nature itself, I transfer the essential being of it. The interlacing forms transform the industrial material into soft and sensual shapes."

Vault // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
As we showed you earlier on the site today, Los Angeles-based Gary Baseman will be opening his first solo musuem survey this week at Skirball Cultural Center. In conjunction with the opening and our 10+ years  of covering Gary's work in the magazine, we look back on a classic article we had in the Jan/Feb 2001issue, #30, where Cleatus Broadus (yep, things were silly in 2001) catches up the "Dumb Luck" of Baseman. Congrats Gary on the museum show.... 

Lost and Found and Inspirational Flyer Series by Nathaniel Russel

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Last month, or better known as the April 2013 issue, we featured one of our favorite artists, Indianapolis-based Nathaniel Russell. One of our favorite parts of the robust body of work from Russell are his flyers and "Lost and Found" pieces, where both humor and a WTF that was amazing moment combine into something far more witty than an average flyer. Needles and Pens in SF has compiled many of these pieces in a 'zine, Public Notice.

We have been huge fans of the works of Jaume Plensa for a long time, and always like sneaking a peek at the sculpture he has up in the Crosby Street Hotel, but his public art is where its at. The artist has lived in Paris, Berlin, Brussels, England, France, USA, and Barcelona, and is best known for his works using the human figure comprised with numbers. He recently had works installed in Calgary, Alberta and Helsinki, Finland.
