Paintings by Christopher Murphy

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 23, 2014
Christopher Murphy sees his paintings and drawings as opportunities to "explore the conceptual contrasts of reality versus illusory and permanence versus ephemeral as applied to memory." Using old family photographs, Christopher obscures the reality that existed at the moment of the photo by drawing upon the blank stares, static poses, and skewed colors that often exist in dated photos.

Kenny Scharf: Playland Motel Mural @ Rockaway Beach, NYC

Street Art // Tuesday, September 23, 2014
Kenny Scharf moved to the big Apple in the late 70’s, the Golden Age that continued throughout the early 80’s, when creativity and art ruled the streets of NYC. Inspired by graffiti’s lack of boundaries and the possibility to connect directly with people, Kenny’s principle is to reach out beyond the elitists’ limits of fine art and create a direct dialogue with popular culture trough his art.

Jettison by Molly Strohl

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 22, 2014
A wonderfully surreal, bizarre series of photographs from Savannah College of Art and Design photography student Molly Strohl. Just love the little details in each photo in the series, "Jettison," with almost painterly additions to each photo.

Richard Prince "It’s a Free Concert" @ Kunsthaus Bregenz, Bregenz, Austria

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 22, 2014
There are almost countless texts, books, and exhibition catalogues about Richard Prince (born 1949), as well as texts he himself has authored not only for his own publications but also those of other artists. Gaining any overview of his exhibition activities proves likewise a challenge, and he was already at the beginning of his career being given solo shows in important international museums. He is known, not least, for the astronomical prices his works command on the art market. 

Serena Mitnik-Miller "Swirl" @ Park Life Gallery, SF

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 22, 2014
Serena Mitnik-Miller has a new body of work up at Park Life Gallery in SF's Mission District. The work, entitled SWIRL, features a series of watercolor on paper with abstract, free-flowing patterns and fluid shapes. After seeing her work at Mollusk and Joshua Liner in recent years, this is another great body of work that you should check. 

Conor Harrington "Eat & Delete" @ 268 Mulberry Street, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 22, 2014
As you may know by now, Conor Harrington will make his NYC-debut this Friday, September 27, as part of a special Lazarides Gallery pop-up at 268 Mulberry Street. Details have been minimal at best, but London-based Harrington has been updating his Instagram with progress shots of the entire process building the work that is "Eat & Delete." We wrote an editorial piece that will be in the November issue of Juxtapoz, out next week, with a few shots of the new paintings, and are excited to share a few more paintings today.

Behold, the fascinating world of diatom art. Klaus Kemp is the only person in the world still practicing this Victorian art form using miniscule microbes as his material.

Leandro Erlich's Architectural Illusions

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 22, 2014
Leandro Erlich creates opitical illusions that allow viewers to hang precariously from window ledges and take what are arguably the most epic selfies.

Photorealist Pastel Drawings by Oliver Jones

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 22, 2014
In his latest series, Love the Skin You're In, British atist Oliver Jones considers the implications inherent in how the media advertises, manipulates and exploits the imagery of flesh. Rendered in colored chalk pastel, the artist's application and delicate handling of his medium mirrors the way in which we apply products to our own skin. Capturing both the translucency and fragility of the skin's surface, Jones' drawings scrutinize subtle variations, colorations and superficialities. The meticulous and time-consuming process by which the artist creates his work is in direct contrast to the immediacy of imagery captured in today's society, and negates the rapid pace at which we are accustomed to consuming images.
