Hand-Cut Photographs by Justine Khamara

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
At first glance the work of Melbourne-based artist Justine Khamara looks like it was digitally manipulated. Justine actually hand-cuts the photographs and rearranges and collages them. Seeking to disrupt photography's smooth, two-dimensional surfaces, she collages and builds sculptures entirely out of photographs. 

Drawings by Samuel Gomez

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
New York City-based artist Samuel Gomez creates large-scale graphite and ink drawings in a surreal-steampunk style. Drafting his narratives into worlds made of highly elaborated machine-like entanglements, Gomez's pieces are incredibly detailed and look to comment on the negative effects of corporations and capitalism.

Photographs by Lee Materazzi

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
The sculptural quality in the make-up of Lee Materazzi's photographs can likely be attributed to her degree in sculptures. Based on everyday life, the photographs transcend the documentation quality of life to elevated concepts about living. "The photographs take the mundane tasks and chores of our existence and express the way in which they affect our consciousness."

Erbossyn Meldibekov's Painted Ceramic Plates

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
Kazakhstani artist Erbossyn Meldibekov has been examining the 'collapse of civility within a post 9/11 environment through a range of diverse mediums, our favorite though, is his series of painted ceramic plates featuring various pack animals with weapons (among other things) strapped to their backs. We want a set...

Nathan James' Unforgiving World

Erotica // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
'Born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Nathan James spent much of his life in the Toronto area before moving to London, UK where he currently lives and works. His current series of paintings, Creepshow, is based on the idea of Pessimist Pop. A reaction to the highly-polished, busy, celebratory work of Koons, Murakami et al, James' paintings deal in the same sort of bold shapes and cultural iconography, but look at the underbelly of these images and contextualizes them in a real, unforgiving world...'

Just in time for Halloween.Wigan born Eelus entered the world of street art after moving to London in 2000. He was almost instantly snatched up by master printmakers Pictures On Walls after street legends Banksy and Eine noticed his work on the grimy walls of East London. Now he enters the gallery with Horrorshow... 

Natalia Rak's Legend Of Giants

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 07, 2013
Polish street artist, Natalia Rak, created this piece entitled, The Legend of Giants, a young girl in traditional Polish garb, watering a local tree.  Rak seems to have broken through a lot of trends in public art as of late, adding a clearly present feminine emotion to her work, essentially telling a story.  An exaggerated soft-tone fills the side of this 4-story building, almost as if the piece had brush strokes, not sprayed.  Which feels unfamiliar when compared to the more mechanical or deconstructed work we see today.

Philip-Lorca diCorcia "Hustlers" @ David Zwirner, NYC
