Walking Into a Gif: Installations by Dominique Pétrin

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 05, 2015
Have you ever tried walking into an 8-bit wonderland? An animated gif? Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist Dominique Pétrin creates these fantastic psychedelic, immersive installations that seem to swallow you whole when you walk into them. I don't do drugs, but if I was accidentally dosed at a party, I would prefer Pétrin's style of hypnosis.

Matt Gonzalez "Dérive: Situationist Encounter in San Francisco"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 05, 2015
Matt Gonzalez’s work is collage-based, utilizing bits of discarded paper products—from advertisements to cardboard containers—that he finds while walking around the city. Most of his compositions feature a highly layered, rectilinear aesthetic that recalls the gridded city streets he traverses and architectural matrixes he passes through...

Some Verbal Expressions Concerning the Painting

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 05, 2015
The painting considers this question: Where was the universe made? Fireworks: they are objects like ourselves. They have their existence in the shapes and colors they contain. But they are going to change when lit, as we will change at some moment in our lives, when we change from life to whatever comes next...

Zio Ziegler has a busy weekend. If you so happen to live in Northern California, you can make it a Zio weekend. As we first noted, Zio has an opening at Jules Maeght Gallery in San Francisco on March 6. Now on March 7, at the great Proof Lab shop in Mill Valley, California, Zio and Vans will have a  shoe release party with live music by The Strange Land, a BBQ, and skating.

Alexis Anne Mackenzie "Multiverse" @ Eleanor Harwood Gallery, San Francisco

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 04, 2015
Alexis Anne Mackenzie's new show Multiverse explores how minor fluctuations in circumstance, or a slight rearrangement of the same elements, can create a wholly different entity. The term Multiverse is the blanket term for parallel universe theories. Most of Mackenzie's work over the past year has investigated living a sort of double or split life. The new direction in her work started with "Synthesis": her project-space show at EHG less than a year ago. We are delighted to be showing more of her new works.
