Pink: A series by Prue Stent

Erotica // Tuesday, November 11, 2014
Let's take a moment to celebrate the color pink, in all its glory, in all its rare use in the natural world or art in general. For some reason, seeing this great series of Pink by Melbourne's Prue Stent made us realize just how rare pjnk is used, or better yet, how rare it is that pink is used well. From Staged Photography, "The themes of her photography center around femininity and the struggle of identity in women. The color pink is used to represent femininity either physically or emotionally throughout her work."

Jen Mann "Q&A" @ Neubacher Shor Contemporary, Toronto

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 11, 2014

We have a feature with Mann in the current December 2014 issue, with much of her new work being previewed there. 

Almost There (Official Trailer)

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 11, 2014
Though it has been happening a bit more in the past few years, it’s not everyday that a prolific “outsider” artist is discovered or shall I say uncovered. By uncovered I almost mean literally because documentarians Aaron Wickenden and Dan Rybiky found this gentleman buried in his own squalor, happily and delusional-y painting away. Almost There digs deep and goes further than your average artist profile film. Check out the trailer below and start digging under rocks in your own town.

In the Half Light

Photography // Tuesday, November 11, 2014
In his series “In the Half Light,” British photographer Joe Dixey explores the faint light cast by twilight and the moment it creates between light and total darkness. Dixey’s images portray the subject matters in a moment of stillness where they are visually comprised of silhouettes and faint detail.

David Walker "A BLANK CANVAS IS A WHITE FLAG" w/ Lawrence Alkin Gallery @ Hoxton Gallery, London

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 11, 2014
David Walker returns to the city where he first made his mark with a major solo show ‘A Blank Canvas is a White Flag’. Walker’s first London gallery show in three years, sees this incredibly talented urban artist presenting a fresh new take on his signature portrait style in a show named after a mantra coined by the artist himself; which refers to the creative battle an artist wages to create work in today’s climate in the face of conspiring forces both internal and external.

Drawings by Boicu Marinela

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 11, 2014
We happened upon some drawings by Romanian artist Boicu Marinela last night and are enjoying the wiry and doodle-like but precise nature of the lines in her work. Marinela studied painting and graphic arts at a school for arts called "Otav bancila."
