The photography of Bill Henson

Photography // Wednesday, February 26, 2014
Bill Henson is a prolific Australian photographer. He is primarily known for his work with adolescents, which addresses sexuality and gender in a beautifully ambiguous manner. The bodies seem to be floating in endless space, illuminated in a dramatic light. These photographs could easily be cinematic stills.

One of our all-time favorite artists, Chris Johanson, sat down with our friends at KQED Arts recently at Adobe Books to discuss not only his life in art, but also some of the reasoning behind his work and the process of exhibitions and learning. KQED also got to spend some time making conceptual art with Chris, with the artist teaching us all how to make our very own piece of art... take notes kids. 

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.
