The Work of Jaime Brett Treadwell

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 31, 2012
I am intrigued by my social surroundings ranging from small neighborhood cultural identities to grander differences among rural, urban, and suburban life. I find pleasure merging conflicting imagery, design, and color. I often use vivid cheerful colors to masquerade or obscure the realities within my paintings.

Enigmatic Nudes by Arnold Frolics

Erotica // Friday, August 31, 2012
There isn't much information out there on photographer Arnold Frolics, and his evocative nudes impart a similar air of mystery. Solitary figures bare all on deserted playground structures and other backdrops in shots that are eerily spotlit à la David Lynch, while angles are often skewed to make for some gravity-defying compositions. Equal parts surreal and sensual.

Preview: Audrey Kawasaki "Midnight Reverie" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 30, 2012
Our friends at Boing Boing just posted an exclusive preview of January 2012 cover artist, Audrey Kawasaki's Midnight Reverie exhibition opening at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC on September 8, 2012. Audrey said of the work, "Some of the pieces have windows, like passage-ways into another world, yet it can also feel like limbo or static—wanting to walk through to the other side, but not being able to. Others are deep in the make believe, magical, mystical realm." More after the jump. . .
