Kollektiv Plus Zwei's Sculptures Look Like Giant Candy

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 03, 2013
Stefanie Högl and Matthias Borowski are kollektiv plus zwei. For the project, "The Importance of the Obvious," they have chosen to look at the dormant potential of materials and how they could be put to use. "First I've taken a close look at food, which, although itself a material, requires entirely different and often unique or experimental preparation methods...Attracted by the material characteristics of candies, I translated their colours, textures, layering, and expressions into designs."

The Colorful Rock Formations of Zhangye Danxia

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 03, 2013
Our featured artist today is the always unbelievable Mother Nature! Her Zhangye Danxia Landform is an incredible expanse of mountains and streaks of incredible color that is the result of millions of years of tectonic plate movements, water flow fissures, erosion, and oxidization. Amazing!

Paintings by Kura Shomali and Steve Bandoma

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 03, 2013
This morning we are enjoying the work of Kura Shomali and Steve Bandoma, two fantastic artists from Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo. Shomali describes his work as a way of 'digesting' the megalopolis of Kinshasha and in his most recent works the artist appropriates well-known images by African photographers. Bandoma also appropriates imagery but from contemporary advertising and magazines, recycling found objects in order 'to breat new life into them.'

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.

Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin's Gingerbread Architecture

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 03, 2013
Re-creating museums such as the Guggenheim, The Louvre, and the Tate Modern, artist Henry Hargreaves and stylist Caitlin Levin carefully baked, glued, cooked, carved, assembled (and hopefully eventually get to eat) these detailed gingerbread "houses!" The candy buildings will be on display at Dylan's Candy Bar at Art Basel this year.
