Paintings by Tom Burckhardt

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 12, 2012
Tom Burckhardt's paintings on cast plastic supports occupy a delicate place in contemporary painting that is self-aware of the discourse surrounding the long-established medium, with many subtle touches to the surfaces reflecting a sense absurdity which accompanies imagery that balances between abstract and representational.

The Tattooed Man

Tattoo // Monday, November 12, 2012
Interesting political piece from Billy Morrow Jackson (1926-2006) of Uncle Sam tattooed with the faces of the "Birmingham Four." This piece, entitled The Tattooed Man, is part of a series of civil rights drawings that were created from 1962-1964, though it still has tremendous implications today (both for civil rights and tattoo).

The Works & Film of Julia Pott

Juxtapoz // Sunday, November 11, 2012
Julia Pott is an illustrator from Brooklyn, NY who "employs awkward animated characters to act out her inner confusions." Something about her layered patterning and lumpy figures makes for a really compelling effect, and because it's the weekend, we threw in a bizarre little short film of hers too. Enjoy!

Juxtapoz // Sunday, November 11, 2012

Purge

Juxtapoz // Sunday, November 11, 2012
In an effort to understad where Purge originates from, we bring you Wikipedia’s definition, “In history, religion, and political science, a purge is the removal of people who are considered undesirable by those in power from a government, from another organization, or from society as a whole.

The Works of Catherine Abel

Juxtapoz // Sunday, November 11, 2012
Creating erotic female portraits, Catherine Abel places her figures into stylized scenes inspired by large artistic movements. Working to combine the angular shapes of 20th century painting with modern female sexuality, Abel's portraits (whose faces almost resemble demure versions of Christian Schad's) re-insert women into the history of Modern painting.
