Van Gogh in 3D, Made of Dahlias

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 09, 2015
This year the Corso Zundert parade in Zundert, Netherlands was inspired by Van Gogh paintings. The floats read as giant 3D interpretations of his artwork and the pieces borrow specific imagery as well as riffing on Van Gogh’s style. This year in Zundert—where Van Gogh was born 162 years ago—19 teams of people created floats for the celebration. The moving sculptures are elaborate mosaics, made entirely of different colors of dahlias.

Anita Evelyn Kunz' Book, "Paintings"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 09, 2015
Canada-based painter and illustrator Anita Evelyn Kunz explores the intersection of human and animal, violence and care. She recently sent us a self-published book of her paintings—a collection of her watercolor and acrylic work—that reveals the intricate details of her sometimes-disturbing imagination. In one, a human holds her baby in a skin pouch on her belly. In another, a cascading series of humans and monkeys nitpick each others scalps until they bleed. 

Megan Cump's "ATOMS / STONES" @ Station Independent Projects, New York

Photography // Tuesday, September 08, 2015
Megan Cump's series Atoms/Stones is a lyrical atlas made of night skies, insects, pre-historic carvings, and portraits of sleepers. In Spain, she encountered a 250,000-year-old fragment of a cranium; its interior, laced with map-like lines, sparked her investigation at the intersection of cosmology and cartography.

New zines from Hamburger Eyes

Photography // Tuesday, September 08, 2015
The ever-busy folks over at Hamburger Eyes have just released a series of new zines, six in total, and they are only $5 each! What that means is that you can get them all and it would probably equal the price of a what you would pay for a regular high quality zine or book or hangover. 

Geoff McFetridge "It Looks Like It Says" @ Joshua Liner Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 08, 2015
We will start this post off with the fact that we really, really like this work. We like former cover artist Geoff McFetridge quite a bit, and because he doesn't do a ton of painting shows, when the Los Angeles artist does make a show of work, we are always excited and can't wait to see it. It Looks Like It Says will be open at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC on September 10—October 10, 2015, and will feature McFetridge's now iconic and signature style, these simplistic but cleverly concepted ideas of everyday life.

"Catharsis" and "Haven" Inaugural Group Show @ Haven Gallery

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 08, 2015
Catharsis captures the juxtaposition between beauty and pain through the artist’s carefully selected subjects. Zambrano’s ability to capture her sitter at their most emotionally evasive and raw moments extends beyond her ability with medium. Upon closer inspection, her strokes exhibit the emotion and power of the human condition in which they portray. The evanescence of response is seized and with it, a fundamental essence of the human psyche is revealed.
