Derek Paul Boyle

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 13, 2013
Derek Paul Boyle is interested in the "power of contradiction, the lure of anticipation, and incompatible states of the self. What was once bound is made free, the known made unknown. In a wavering step between angst and serentity, fear and pleasure, I want to give form to anxiety, a shape to tension."

Oil Paintings of Carpets by Antonio Santin

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 13, 2013
Spanish artist Antonio Santin's collection paintings of human bodies (we assume) hidden under ornate tapestries are rather haunting. His process involves projecting a photograph onto the wall and manipulating the size and proportion as he paints. He is currently on exhibit at Marc Straus Gallery in NYC.

Jenny Morgan's Personal Portraits

Erotica // Friday, September 13, 2013
'The figure is simply the most compelling subject matter for me, it feels natural and with the ebb and flow of my style and maturity, I find new ways to approach the portrait. It has taken me years to break through walls that were developed when I was younger- ideals about the tradition of painting and the preciousness of realism...'  

The Insanity of Aaron Horkey

Illustration // Friday, September 13, 2013
Aaron Horkey was birthed and reared in Windom, Minnesota, in the heart of the Rural Midwest. Key personality traits include debilitating social ineptitude and a perverse attention to detail. Enjoys desolation, megafauna and transplanting sumacs. Currently ensconced in a bucolic whistlestop just west of the Mississippi, he whiles away the hours staring at his chore list and cultivating ulcers. He is the sole survivor of the Black Osprey Dead Arts Society and founding member of the Cottonwood County Druids Skateboard Gang.  

Joseph Harmon's Psychedelia

Illustration // Thursday, September 12, 2013
Reigning from the equally bizarre entity that is Portland, Joseph Harmon is an artist and illustrator with an affinity for seizure-inducing narratives and compositions. His work depicts an array of strangely rendered characters in a palette of juicy pop colors and hues. Get weird with Joseph's work for awhile... you won't regret it.
