Ink Drawings by Eugene Andolsek

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 05, 2015
Using graph paper, a straight edge, a pair of compasses, and self-mixed colored inks, Eugene Andolsek created these wildly colorful and detailed geometric drawings. A stenographer during the day, Andolsek was untrained as an artist and would draw to escape the monotony of daily life while sitting at the kitchen table with his ailing mother. "The release was cathartic and pretty soon he was getting lost in the intricacies of his work and the geometric worlds he created, drawing and coloring for hours on end in a trance." Andolsek passed away in 2008.

Juxtapoz x Squarespace: Beyond the Cover

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 04, 2015
Whatever twists and turns art may make in the relative favor or disfavor awarded any paradigm of style or content at a given moment, there is always a perennial divide between those who feel that less is more and those who feel, rather, that more is, well, never enough. These opposing attitudes, or competing aesthetics, have borne different names over the years, but let us simply call the former a kind of Minimalism and the latter a matter of Maximalism...

Mona Kuhn: Acido Dorado

Photography // Monday, May 04, 2015
We are huge fans of Mona Kuhn here at Juxtapoz, and even though this body of work was shown at Edwynn Houk Gallery in late 2014, we love her latest series "Acido Dorado." As the press release stated, "Kuhn’s newest body of work is Acido Dorado, set inside architect Robert Stone’s secluded golden palace in Joshua Tree National Park, California. In this series, Kuhn explores her close friend and collaborator Jacintha, interacting with the American desert. Shallow pools, mirrored ceilings and glass walls frame sandy colored hallucinations filled with dreamy light leaks and seductive reflections."
