Beyond the Cover: Mary Iverson

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 16, 2015
Mary Iverson is an exquisite landscape painter with a razor-sharp contemporary edge. On the surface, we see activism, her collages and paintings warning us of a dystopic future existence. But the truth is, this apocalypse is happening now. Through her paintings of rogue shipping containers invading precious, untouched vistas, she uncovers the gross excess and collateral damages of the shipping industry, and ultimately, commercialism.

Analogue by Zoe Leonard

Photography // Thursday, July 16, 2015
Analogue is a landmark project comprising 412 photographs conceived over the course of a decade.  Photographer Zoe Leonard documents the eclipsed texture of 20th century urban life as seen in vanishing mom-and-pop stores and the simultaneous emergence of the global rag trade.  The artist took her own neighborhood, Manhattan’s Lower East Side, as a point of departure in the late 1990s.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 16, 2015
Most galleries like to pull off a good group show for the summer, and Joshua Liner Gallery has put together a solid one with "Summer Mixer 2015," featuring a group of artists we have really had our eye on recently. Of course, Mars-1 who has been on the cover of the magazine you may already know, but we love the direction Eric Shaw, Libby Black, Elise Ferguson, Kristen Schiele, and the others in this show have been going. Take a look at the gallery for some of our favorites in the Mixer that will be open now through August 21, 2015. 

Lithuanian Dance Clubs by Andrew Miksys

Photography // Thursday, July 16, 2015
Andrew Miksys is a Washington-bred photographer who currently splits his time between Seattle and Vilnius, Lithuania. His series DISKO explores the anomalies of small town Lithuanian discos. Discovered on just his second trip to the country in the late 90’s, Miksys's fascination with the clubs was instantaneous. Drawn in by the lingering signs of the country’s Soviet past mixing with new youth culture, Miksys captured a glimpse of a country in transition. 

Organic Matters: Women to Watch 2015 @ National Museum of Women in the Arts

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 16, 2015
If Earth is our Mother, for the sake of argument, why not go to the source and delve into an encompassing exhibition, Organic Matters – Women to Watch 2015. What’s special is that the National Museum of Women in the Arts embarked on a dedicated effort to seek ascending female artists from, not only enclaves within the States, but throughout the world. Ancient musings about our romanticism and fear of nature, as well as climate change and stewardship are explored at this show in Washington, D.C.

3cm's Portraits with Body Manipulations and Modifications

Photography // Thursday, July 16, 2015
Under the name 3cm, Yung Cheng Lin, a Taiwanese photographer, focuses on portraits of women with some kind of body manipulation—either literally or through the play of imagery. Many of her portraits seem intent to disturb, piercing the body with threads, tacks or nails. They also reference some of the often hidden elements of the female body: blood and fluids. 

The Psychedelic Marbles of Mike Gong

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 16, 2015
Mike Gong hasn't lost his marbles. He's selling them. His intricate, pscychedelic designs, each a clash of bright colors, are embedded in tiny glass globes. These miniature glass art pieces range in diameter from about 13mm to 50mm, and as you turn them, the design shifts. They feature both abstract patterns and, in his Acid Eaters collection, the more direct: monstrous faces holding tabs of acid on their tongues. 

Carlos Santos' Anatomical Distortions

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 16, 2015
Think about the human body; the veins, the bones, the blood, the way everything is connected. Think about the way it’s structured and then, toss this idea aside.  What is left without this is a continuum of forms without limitations, a mere idea of the way everything circulates within us. This is what Mexican artist Carlos Santos gives to his spectator.

Juxtapoz Presents: Tom Killion's Woodcut Printmaking

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 15, 2015
Northern California is home to some of the world’s most gorgeous landscapes. From the Sierra to the Ocean, to mountains that touch the Pacific, the ethereal beauty is a work of art itself. For over 40 years, Tom Killion has delicately archived the environmental majesty of California within the traditional process of Japanese-Style woodblock printmaking, creating stunning, colorful works through a handmade, ancient operation. We visited Tom at his Point Reyes studio to experience the comfort of a beginner’s state of mind.
