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.

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.
