In L.A.: Miles Thompson @ La Luz de Jesus

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 18, 2012
We stopped by La Luz de Jesus Gallery to check out Miles Thompson's latest solo exhibition, Warm Fuzzies, Cold Pricklies. Miles Thompson has chosen Gouache on illustration board to create his new body of work, a show which reflects on what makes life both a beach and a bitch. It is an epitaph for the oceans and forests, once abundant and fecund (look it up, it is the root of the F bomb), now only a ghostly reminder of what an infinite life giving power they once were.

In L.A.: No Person May Carry A Fish Into A Bar @ Blum & Poe

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 18, 2012
This past weekend we stopped by Blum & Poe to check out No Perons May Carry A Fish Into A Bar, a group exhibition curated by Julian Hoeber and Alix Lambert. This exhibition seeks to ask, “what is a crime?” The exhibition title, derived from an obsolete law still on the books in Los Angeles, points to the definitions of criminal behavior as sometimes absurd, other times poetic, and occasionally magical.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 18, 2012
Kevin Parry produced a series of dizzying animations in and around the city of San Francisco recently while working on a music video for Kalle Mattson (shot by Andrea Nesbitt).

The Works of Nat Russell

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 18, 2012
This past March, we checked out the solo show of one Nat Russell at Mollusk Surf Shop in San Francisco, sans camera. That was not smart. Now on the eve of Russell's showing at Ed. Varie in NYC, we wanted to showcase some of the works of the Indianapolis-based artist. With wit and abstract graphic elements, his new show will feature large scale paintings, watercolor, and silk-screen works on paper, a multi-dimensional installation, and fine art lithography prints.

Stitching on Photographs by Maria Aparico Puentes

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 18, 2012
Chilean artist Maria Aparico Puentes stitches thread into geometric shapes over photography, an effect that makes the subjects appear to be existing on the borders of another dimension. Speaking on her work, Puentes notes, "I imagine that some of these impressions point me to study Architecture."

Self-Portraits by Kyle Thompson

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 18, 2012
Sometimes it just takes one. A stunning series of self-portraits by photographer Kyle Thompson. Minimal effects, an occasional action, simple props, and well-constructed concepts allows the viewer a voyeuristic experience into an artist's surreal vision. 

Marcel Dzama Captured in TateShots

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 18, 2012
TateShots spends a day with artist Marcel Dzama as part of their New York special issue. Dzama‘s work is characterized by an immediately recognizable visual language that draws from a diverse range of references and artistic influences, including Dada and Marcel Duchamp.

Comic Con 2012: A Look at Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Tim Burton brought his latest addition to his hallowed filmography to Comic-Con this year. Frankenweenie is the loving tale of a boy and his dog.Of course, this is a reanimated Frankenstein patchwork dog, but a dog non the less. Shot in stop motion (and all in black and white), Frankenweenie started out as a short film created by Burton in 1984, but for Comic Con, he brought the original puppets, set pieces, and props from the film to a mini exhibit available for the public to see.

Comic Con 2012: Sights & Sounds

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Needless to say, Comic-Con brings out a unique group of people. People who leave their homes dressed in painstakingly created costumes without fear of embarrassment, people who covet and swoon the latest toy releases well beyond their childhood years, and those who wish to talk about subject matter usually restricted to Internet message boards (and maybe your mother's basement). But, we love it.
