The Erotic Prints of Félicien Rops

Erotica // Friday, March 14, 2014
Félicien Rops (7 July 1833 – 23 August 1898) was a Belgian artist, known primarily as a printmaker in etching and aquatint. Spending most of his life in Paris, Rops founded a satirical weekly entitled ‘Uylenspiegel' in 1856. He engraved and illustrated many literary works including those of Baudelaire and Barbey d'Aurevilly. Considered rather scandalous in his time, Rops' prints are inhabited by the likes of devils, skeletons, prostitutes and Death himself.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 13, 2014
Asya Geisberg Gallery is pleased to present "No Church in the Wild", Rebecca Morgan's second exhibition with the gallery. Whereas her first exhibition "Cabin Fever" presented an array of archetypal Appalachian personages, in "NCITW" Morgan gives us a glimpse of their cultural signifiers and environment. Unruly and uncivilized, her characters epitomize both historic conceptions of Appalachia and its current state of anomie and mass-market tastes combined with off-the-grid lifestyles and abject poverty.

Garfield Minus Garfield... An appreciation

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 13, 2014
I don't know about you, but it's the little things in life that make me happy. I like a good cup of coffee before 7:30am, a commute with minimal red lights, and comic strips in my morning paper. A few days ago, a friend of mine showed me this fantastic and brilliant Tumblr, "Garfield Minus Garfield," that has had me in hysterics over and over again. Man, that poor Jon Arbuckle... what a sad existence.
