Jean Pierre Arboleda “The Nature of Evolution” @ AFA Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 25, 2014
Earlier this month, AFA gallery Soho opened “The Nature of Evolution,” a collection of new works by Jean Pierre Arboleda. The images are densely packed with deftly rendered creatures, a herpetologists dream, frogs and lizards abound. The paintings and drawings all bear witness to Arboleda’s masterful execution of detail through the slow buildup of small hatch marks. Most of the larger works in the show are works on paper, acrylic paint worked over drawings made with colored pencil, while many of the smaller works are oil on panel.

The Photography of Brian Finke

Photography // Tuesday, February 25, 2014
It’s not hard to spot the photographs of Brooklyn–based photographer Brian Finke. Bright, crisp, and merged somewhere between traditional documentary and narrative art, Finke captures moments heightened by unprecedented access. His award-winning works 2468: American Cheerleaders and Football Players, Flight Attendants and Construction allowed us to peer inside personal worlds outside of our own; tears on the playing field, life at 30,000 feet and an inside look at the 2010 crash of the construction industry.

Drawings by Monica Zeringue

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 25, 2014

The girls exist in a world devoid of any reference to time or location, as in a partially recalled dream or memory. I am exploring identity, as I return myself back to a time of possibility: still innocent, but at the brink of change...
