Paintings by Nigel Cooke

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 05, 2013
Today we take a look through the work of British painter Nigel Cooke. 'Acknowledging the velocity of painting, the vitality of the impact of the paint iteslf and the perverse psychology of the strokes that make it, Cooke's paintings deliriously push and pull us from layers of depth and detail to extreme surfaces of impasto...'

Resin Paintings by Jessica Dunegan

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 04, 2013
Boston-based artist Jussica Dunegan uses a mixture of epoxy resin and acrylic paint, squeezing tubes of paint directly into a layer of resin while it is still in liquid form. The opaque strands of paint remain loosely delineated and hover within the transparent resin. Once the initial layer dries she will repeat the process to give the paintings a physical dimension. The resulting piece may look realistic from afar but upon closer inspection, they are comprised of suspended, chaotic lines. Watch a video after the jump!

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 04, 2013
Not quite sure why everytime we see a group of people in dark clothing and masks we immediately think Eyes Wide Shut, and the fantastic, mass-oriented, fine art photography of Claudia Rogge does just that to us. The German photographer shoot individual subjects, and then digitally arranges them to create a sense of mass participation and performance.
