Omar Ortiz: Hyperreal Painting in Focus

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 30, 2013
Omar Ortiz' hyperreal paintings are not new to the site, and we plan on continuing our coverage of the work in the coming months because he has a prolific body of work going that is stunningly realistic. We know we cover hyperrealism on the site often, but coming across Ortiz' new work, Focus II, we had to doubletake at how insanely real these hands and depth of field are captured in this painting... see the details...

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 30, 2013
Michael Peck, who has been profiled in the magazine in the past, just sent us a stunning preview video in conjunction with his new body of work and exhibition, Love & Fear, premiering at Metro Gallery in Melbourne this November 16, 2013. The video was shot during Peck's 3 month artist in residency earlier this year at Birrarung House in Melbourne’s fringe bush land, and, in being there, Peck was "inspired by the isolation of the surrounding landscape... reimagin(ing) the human experience within a familiar yet somewhat inexplicable environment."
