The Connor Brothers "True Love Stories" @ Guy Hepner, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
Guy Hepner Gallery in Los Angeles is pleased to announce what is sure to be an interesting exhibition, The Connor Brothers' new work, True Love Stories. Twins Franklyn and Brendan Conner were brought up within a secretive and highly controversial cult known as ‘The Family’. Born out of the hippie movement in 1968 and founded by David Berg ‘The Family’ was an extreme Christian cult whose members believed in something called ‘The System.' Actors River and Joaquin Phoenix were also brought up within the cult... so this should get interesting... 

Clare Rojas @ Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
A quite nice example of an artist who has worked in abstraction for a few years now with minimal figurative elements going fully into abstract expressionist work with great results. Currently showing at Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld in NYC is this untitled solo exhibition of 24 new paintings by Clare Rojas. As the gallery notes, "It is Rojas’s first showing in New York since her hiatus from painting and this reintroduction reveals her evolution into the visual language of abstract expression."

Jules de Balincourt "Itinerant Ones" @ Victoria Miro, London

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
Victoria Miro is delighted to present Jules de Balincourt's Itinerant Ones, the first solo exhibition in the UK for the Paris-born, New York- based painter. Known for his carefully constructed paintings that move effortlessly between abstraction and figuration, the imagined and the real, this new body of work sees De Balincourt moving away from direct references to current social, political or popular culture, and instead depicting a world in which indications of specific place or time are absent.

Edouard Martinet's Insect Sculptures

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
Part of a car, bicycle, umbrella, compass, typewriter, clock, compass, the list of materials that French artist Edouard Martinet uses to construct his insect sculptures is as random at varied as it gets. The artist does not solder or weld parts but assembles them with the precision of a watchmaker, screwing them together and taking around a month per sculpture. His first took him four weeks and 17 years for his most recent!

Update: Stunning Carved and Illustrated Maps by Ed Fairburn

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
Ed Fairburn has updated his portrolio with a few new pieces. He began his Maps series, using ink and pencil to illustrate portraits on maps, utilizing the patterned and multicolored surfaces as "an eye-catching attribute" to "echo the complex textures found in the human form." He recently released a new work where he also cut and layered the map! The piece was created from a reproduced military map of France and framed them in a way "to show a physical depth between each layer."

Paintings by Alison Blickle

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
We are enjoying the work of Los Angeles-based artist Alison Blickle this morning. She will be exhibiting some new work in "Huntress," at Kravets/Wehby Gallery in NYC, opening today! "My paintings let me live out fantasies through characters I create. These stories often involve my desire to feel a connection to something bigger than myself-- to nature, to my ancestors, or to a sense of spirituality."

Photographs by Kylli Sparre (aka Sparrek)

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
Kylli Sparre (aka Sparrek) trained as a professional ballet dancer before coming to the conclusion that the path wasn't for her. Instead, she directed the same passions for dance into photography. These passions are evident in her images, the same movements, energy, and choreographed movements of dance can be found throughout her work.
