Don't blink and make sure you look closely. These are the talents that make you have a double take.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 13, 2012
NYC-based Clark Goolsby has a big-ass spread in our January 2013 issue (that was fun to write).

The second show at Mirus, Escape Velocity will feature works that are surreal, abstract, philosophical, but also feature figurative, familiar shapes and personas.

Floating "Virgins of Apeldoorn" by Elisabet Stienstra

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 13, 2012
Dutch artist Elisabet Stienstra has created the Virgins of Apeldoorn, a series of three bronze statues of girls that appear to be floating over a park. When seen together, the bronze sculptures almost appear to be a sequential series of a girl turning over in her sleep. Not only is their the awkward moment for the passer-by to see underneath the girl's clothing, which to us seems intentional no matter how you slice it, the works really do appear to float. Stunning stuff.

Animatronic Muses by Nur Moo

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 13, 2012
Nur Moo is a mainly a photographer and art director in Parma, Italy, though her series of animatronic models caught my attention, in some futuristic, Svedka sort of way. With slightly creepy, dark undertones, her digitally created works of less than human feminine figures are seen throughout her portfolio, peeking in between her erotic photography.

Victo Ngai
