In the Magazine: Crystal Wagner

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 01, 2015
Crystal Wagner is performing a visionary dance, and in its wake, fantastical organisms are left—lively, colorful and curious. Dazzling and disgusting. Like tidal waves and tree forts, her site-specific installations engulf the audience, simulating an encounter with nature, but with a wholly unnatural skin, a suggestion of excess, and a little nostalgia on the side. Growing up in a custom studio, her commitment to the art life has fueled her trajectory since day one.

The Paintings of Clovis Trouille

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 01, 2015
Clovis Trouille was born on 24 October 1889, in La Fère, France. He worked as a restorer and decorator of department store mannequins, but is remembered as a Sunday painter who trained at the École des Beaux-Arts of Amiens from 1905 to 1910.

The simple style and lurid colouring of Trouille's paintings echo the lithographic posters used in advertising in the first half of the 20th century. He died on 24 September 1975 in Paris.
