Alain Delorme's Totems

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 24, 2012
The social and economic paradoxes of modern Shanghai are presented in Alain Delorme's "Totems." This series of exaggerated photographs, manipulated through photoshop, depicts the reality of the low-wage workers who toil at the bottom rung while Shanghai expands around them. In the midst of rising skyscrapers and exploding wealth, they are left to carry the ever-increasing weight of the city's market demands.

Experimental Sketches from Jake Evans

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 24, 2012
In this ongoing series of abstract visual experiments, designer and artist Jake Evans wholeheartedly embraces the freedom of expression a sketchbook can provide, whether fleeting impressions of color, kernels of aesthetic concepts, or snippets of shapes and compositions. It's an intimate glance into Evans' unique creative process, a seemingly chaotic yet captivating snapshot of the artist's mind at work.

IN L.A.: Sarah Cain "Freedom is a Prime Number" @ Honor Fraser

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 24, 2012
  We stopped by the opening reception for Sarah Cain's first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, Freedom is a Prime Number. We like how she describes herself: "Sarah Cain enjoys doing things the wrong way, always starting out with a mistake, an accident, an errant line, an unruly string, an ugly shirt, illegible graffiti, a drunken pattern, a counterfeit pimp's horde of fake gold chain, etc." Photos and more after the jump...

The Collage Work of Thomas Robson

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 24, 2012
They call it Art Remix, and we find these additions to fine art, created as "collages" by Thomas Robson, to be rather stunning appropriations. "Thomas Robson uses appropriation art to confront received aesthetics and critically re-appraise imagery in a visually saturated world, creating a contempoary Art Remix portfolio of Art Luxe images."

Work by Bethan Huws

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 24, 2012
Bethan Huws' work is relatively straightforward. With titles like Dates are Important, Black and White Animals, Digressive Biscuits, and Onion on a Swing, it is pretty clear what is going on, but then, it's also peculiar, humorous, and you might even say poetic.
