"Alchemy" Curated by Monica Canilao @ Inner State Gallery, Detroit

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 09, 2015
This one should be awesome. Our good friend Monica Canilao, who we have worked with in Detroit in the past (see the Juxtapoz 15th Anniversary project from 2009-10), and we are hyped that she curated a group show, Alchemy, at Inner State Gallery. She brought some really good artists to show: Swoon, Doze Green, Swampy, Dennis McNett, Kyle Ranson, and a lot more. Basically the type of artists you should know/get to know. 

“Parts” by Eva Stenram

Photography // Thursday, July 09, 2015
Artist Eva Stenram began working on her ongoing series “Parts” in 2013. In “Parts” Stenram sources pin-up photos from the 1960’s and alters them so that the model photographed is erased leaving only one of the model’s legs intact. The images thus become strikingly odd and surreal. According to Stenram, “The result is a very artificial and theatrical image even though the depiction of the model is drastically censored and cut.


Graffiti // Thursday, July 09, 2015
Post-Graffiti Pacific, which launches at aMBUSH Gallery, Central Park, Chippendale on Thursday 16 July from 6-9pm, seeks, in part, to organise the way we talk about urban contemporary art. As urban contemporary artists have evolved to straddle the divide between public and studio practice, terms like ‘graffiti’ and ‘street art’ have become insufficient to describe the activities and motivations of today’s urban artists. ‘Post-Graffiti’ is now a recognised term, used to describe the work of artists whose backgrounds in graffiti inform their professional artistic practice.

Wong Ping's Illustrations for Prada

Illustration // Thursday, July 09, 2015
We've posted the animations before from Wong Ping. His work ranges from bizarre animated mask porn to bright, pixellated poppy-with-an-edge videos. His latest project is for Prada's new line of sunglasses, Prada Raw. Prada has incorporated animations from six artists—Carly Kuhn, Blair Breitenstein, Judith Van Den Hoek, Megan Hess, Vilda Vega and Wong Ping—into a campaign advertising their new line. 

Creatures Made From Old VHS Tapes

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 09, 2015
Night forbade by a sunray. Not a bird to be heard, not a herd of grass to clench, no vengeful sun to pray. Mysterious, mesmerizing, onilyrical, the V monoliths, somber giants built by Phillip Ob Rey, shaped as monsters of calm flesh limbs, carved into the lumps of the subterranean, revolve around calm crepuscular sceneries, lunar horizons of a frostbitten Iceland, and question the depths of our unconscious on the After, future of the human race.

Dennis McNett's The Serpent of Sheboygan

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 09, 2015
Thousands of years after the flames of Ragnarok had burned over the earth and the smoke from the fires blocked the sun from warming the planet, there came a great age of ice. Energies and information of the great gods and giants were scattered and lost across mountains, seas, winds and giant glaciers.

Alaina Varrone's Embroidery Portraits

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 09, 2015
We've posted on Alaina Varrone's embroidery before. She's been cornering the sub-genre of erotic embroidery art for a while. Her latest work, however, has featured intimate (but not necessarily erotic) portraits of people in casual settings: a "girls night out" or friends laughing together. She's still creating scenes, though, like a woman in an alien mask kissing a thonged buttox.

They hit up White Sands National Monument in New Mexico, an abandoned brewery in Berlin, and the forests of northern Japan as part of a five-part series that captures visual artists "stepping out of their studios and into a new environment for new inspiration."
