Opening: Aaron Nagel "Sovereign" @ Lyons Wier Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Last week, we had the pleasure of attending the first solo exhibition in New York City of Aaron Nagel at the Lyons Wier Gallery. Upon discovering oils, Aaron has been obsessed with the perfectionism of its usage, creating an impeccable and soft texture in his realistic work.

Paintings by Mernet Larson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Mernet Larson's paintings are filled with a diverse array of cues that suggest various past artists from De Chirico to Lissitzky. Her most recent three bodies of work (or "three chapters as the title of her show") focus on heads and bodies, places, and narratives.

The Photography of Sarah Ann Loreth

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Sarah Ann Loreth does not take photographs; she creates them from scenes she pulls from deep within her psyche. Sarah is a fine art photographer from New Hampshire, who specializes in self-portraiture and conceptual portraiture. In her work she tries to covey a quiet stillness of emotion with a connection to her natural surroundings.

New Push-Pin Works by Eric Daigh

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Apparently, all you need are 5 different colors of pushpins, and you can make these incredible portraits by Eric Daigh. Even though at times we think we are looking at mugshots (what, no smiles?), Daigh is at the top of his game with these new series of pushpin portraits. 

Felix Baumgartner's Jump in LEGOS

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 16, 2012
If you are a human, which we assume you are, then you have to be impressed and probably have watched the amazing, 24-mile skydive-human flying-jump by Felix Baumgartner this past weekend. Of course, these things can't be immortalized unless they are Lego-ized. Which has been done now at Vienna’s Model Maker Fair.

New work by Joshua Boulet

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Illustrator and comic artist Joshua Boulet has a couple new pieces completed, and available for your wall if you feel so inclined. His 5Points illustration of a New York scene is pretty intricate and amazing- full of all kinds of elements from the street in high contrast black on white. Thanks for the reader submission Joshua!

Juxtapoz @ Treasure Island Music Festival 2012

Music // Monday, October 15, 2012
After our partnership with Outside Lands over the summer Juxtapoz was lucky enough to be invited to partner with Treasure Island Music Festival. After a light breakfast we headed to Civic Center to take the free shuttle, yes free, out to the island, a quick 10 - 15 minute ride across the Bay Bridge to enter the festival and see the likes of Public Enemy, The xx, Grimes, Ty Segall, Matthew Dear, Youth Lagoon, M83, and others.

Master of the Month: Emma Kunz

Illustration // Monday, October 15, 2012
Emma Kunz was a Swiss telepathic healer, researcher, and artist who in the 1940's, channeled drawings for her patients using colored pencils, crayons, graph paper and a pendulum. For most of her life, Kunz served as a telepathic healer and her drawings operated both as documentation of research into and as conduits for patterns of vibrational energy that could be used to realign the psychic imbalances underlying her patients’ medical conditions and cure them.

Upcoming: Jeremy Geddes & Ashley Wood @ Jonathan Levine, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 15, 2012
A coinciding show we have been looking forward to ever since we interviewed Australian artist Ashley Wood in our November 2011 issue: Wood and February 2012 cover artist, Jeremy Geddes, are set to open two solo shows at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC this Saturday, October 20. Geddes' Exhale and Wood's Machine Sabbath both have the Australian artists showing new works with a high anticipation throughout the art world.
