Preview: Christine Wu “Come Home” @ La Luz de Jesus, LA

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 29, 2013
Looking forward to checking out the new body of work from Juxtapoz favorite Christine Wu when she opens Come Home at La Luz de Jesus in Los Angeles on November 1, 2013. Her dreamy, surreal, and often erotic paintings have captured our attention over the past year, and as La Luz de Jesus notes, "Stylistically, her work is multi-layered, with haunting and sexual undertones. She often depicts people in flux, capturing the vulnerability of self discovery and the lingering ghosts of memories best left to the past."

Jerome Abramovitch is a Montreal-based photographer. His creativity has been immortalized twice in the Guinness World Book of Records, and worldwide media such as 'Ripley's Believe It or Not!' have featured his work. The stark honesty of his photographs is a testament to who he is as an artist, the eccentric characters that surround him, and the intimate bonds they share.

These two series, Metamorphose and Fusion were taken by French photographer Frederic Fontenoy between 1988 and 1992. The first, amazing blurred, abstract photos of people jumping, flipping, and contorting themselves and the second of bizarre limbs and body parts seemingly missing key parts, placed in nature.

John Baldessari "Storyboard (in 4 Parts)" @ Sprüth Magers, Berlin

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 28, 2013
Earlier this year in Singapore, Juxtapoz went to the opening of California conceptual artist John Baldessari with the gallery Michael Janssen, and of course, you remember that Mr Baldessari interviewed Tom Waits for our very special October 2013 cover story. We have had almost a full year of appreciating the artist, and we wish we could be in Berlin to see the tail end of his newest work at Sprüth Magers. But, if you need a little help with Baldessari, we just saw this Jason Schwartzman video helping to explain the artist to you... so you got Berlin art, and older Schwartzman video...
