Olaf Breuning: The Art Freaks

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 03, 2013
Olaf Breuning's "The Art Freaks," is a group of color photographs transposing the signature styles of seminal 20th-century artists into prosaic body painting. Both humorous and uncanny, the series not only questions our relationship to the enduring artworks Breuning chose to reference, but also to the reproductions and consumable patina through which most of us experience these artists' works and their distinctive aesthetics.

The Work of Kate McCgwire

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 02, 2013
'Kate MccGwire's practice probes the beauty inherent in duality, exploring the play of opposites - at an aesthetic, intellectual and visceral level - that characterises the way we conceive the world. She does this by appealing to our essential duality as human beings, to our senses and our reason, and by drawing on materials capable of embodying a dichotomous way of seeing, feeling and thinking. The finished work has a consistent 'otherness' to it that places it beyond our experience of the world, poised on a threshold between the parameters that define everyday reality.'
