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."

ONEQ and the New Art of the Pin-up

Erotica // Monday, May 04, 2015
ONEQ does phenomenal pinups. She grew up on a small island in Japan completely separated from the flash and pop of Tokyo culture and gathered all her influences from a neighbor who loved art and Japan’s insistence that schoolchildren spend part of the day drawing. As she grew up she taught herself how to draw completely by herself...

Paintings and Drawings by Shu Jian Zhang

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 04, 2015
At the first glance, Zhang’s often small-scale paintings would seem to be photorealistic portraits, and although there is a strong emphasis on details, if you give it just a few more seconds to sink in, you would realise that the artist’s intention is not merely to portray his subjects in a way that is closest to reality, but rather, he aims to express his simple yet unconventional concepts in a way that exceeds reality.
