The Hyperreal Works of Dutch Artist, Jantina Peperkamp

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 28, 2014
The photorealistic painting of the Dutch artist Jantina Peperkamp emit a soft and exquisite light with an incredible precision, while the viewers can read a certain loneliness and desolation in it. The final result is established by the energy that arises between the artist and her model, as the artist functions as observer and as identifier. Because Jantina Peperkamp considers all her paintings as self-portraits, and it is very important for the painter to recognize herself in her models.

Jeremy Lipking's Naturalist Nudes

Erotica // Friday, February 28, 2014
Jeremy Lipking's oil paintings take a cue from the great realist tradition of the late nineteenth century, intimate portraits of reclining nudes and women in nature depicted through a mixture of open gestural touchs and sharp lifelike renderings. The human figure dominates his compositions, with Lipking's subjects often turning their faces away so that the body itself takes center stage. The son of a professional illustrator, Lipking attended the California Art Institute. He is based in Los Angeles.

As if rendered in ideal model form, it is as if in each their full personality has been released."

The controversial and provocative photographic work of Andres Serrano

Photography // Friday, February 28, 2014
Andres Serrano is extremely well known yet underappreciated. The majority of people who are aware of his work are only familiar with his publicity stunt "Piss Christ," where he soaked a crucifix of Jesus in urine. While this may seem vile, Serrano is interested in what contemporary religion and sexuality look like. Many may claim this statement, but none have explored it in such an arduous and disturbing manner as Serrano.
