Self-Portraits and Nature by Lina Scheynius

Photography // Wednesday, December 24, 2014
We have been following the career of Lina Scheynius for a few years, and there were a few updates recently that made us want to share with the Juxtapoz audience.

This work is only going to get better and better.

Best of 2014: Jenny Morgan, September Cover Artist

Vault // Wednesday, December 24, 2014
Adding something fresh and necessary to the genre of portraiture may seem impossible, but in that realm, Jenny Morgan is crushing it. Don't label her paintings figurative or photoreal. Her extraordinary skills for rendering the human figure are beside the point. Layers of the unconscious are revealed in the reductive abstraction of her portraits.

The work of Rachel Fagiano

Illustration // Wednesday, December 24, 2014
Through her work, Rachel Fagiano uses illustration, painting, sculpture and installation art to explore the ways in which representations of bodies can explicitly or implicitly reflect on cultural and political issues in the spaces we occupy. 'I am particularly interested in formative moments--corporeal and cerebral--and how they are instrumental in creating individual and collective identities.' Thanks for the reader submission Rachel!

Most "things" in the world are made in China, and by things I mean consumer products. Nothing says consumerism like Christmas, and one had to wonder at some point where all the Xmas decorations come from.
