Eddie Martinez "Perfect Stranger" Print

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 01, 2014
Eddie Martinez uses oil paint, enamel, and spray paint to create vibrantly textured, abstract surfaces charged with drips, scratches, and brushstrokes. Offsetting the primary red and yellow with a denim hued blue, Martinez aggressively tacks on color to create a contrasting yet sophisticated palette, deeply rooted in color theory and the process of drawing. Perfect Stranger, while not obviously figurative, embodies the gesture of large-scale Abstract Expressionism...

James Turrell: Prints and Process @ Pace Prints, NYC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 01, 2014
The triumphant job of the printers here is to get the sense of light and color that comes out of the paper like it does with the light,” says Turrell. In order to achieve this effect, Shibata contrasts an oil-based background with water-based ink, resulting in a vibrating light that is typical of Turrell’s work and nearly impossible to capture photographically...

Hermann Försterling is a German painter and photographer whose photographs of the human body we have been admiring for the last couple weeks. Using a copper plate etching technique that transfers the photographs to hand-made papers, the artists creates often uncomfortable images of an almost corpselike presentation of the human body. At the same time, the photographs are a beautiful celebration of the human form. Be sure to explore his site for more work!

Before apps, text messages, and cameras, there was a phone that changed the way we conversed over telecommunications.

Thomas Pynchon's "Inherent Vice" gets the Paul Thomas Anderson film treatment—Trailer

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 30, 2014
We have been wondering how esteemed director Paul Thomas Anderson was going to tackle the depth and wormhold writing-stlye of Thomas Pynchon and capture it in a coherent film, but PTA is the man to do the job if there ever was anyone. "Inherent Vice" originally was published in 2009, and Anderson signed up to direct the film not that much later. Now we have a trailer for the film, set to release in December 2014, with starring roles from Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio del Toro, Jena Malone, Maya Rudolph, and Martin Short.
