Hyperreal Noodle Sculptures by Seung Yul Oh

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 06, 2014
One of our favorite pieces of art from 2013's Art Basel Hong Kong was the outside, interactive sculpture, "Periphery", by Seung Yul Oh, on display in the main hall of the Fair. We were happy to see this great project also pop up on the web in recent days, the New Zealand-based, Seoul-born artist's series of hyperreal, resin sculptures of various Korean noodle dishes. Hanging over 12-feet above a gallery floor, Oh not only created the noodles to suspend in air, but the meats, vegetables, and eggs all are hand-crafted and appear edible.

The Work of Joseph Parra

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 06, 2014
We stumbled across some great works by Baltimore-based Joseph Parra this morning, a wonderful collection of screenprints, digital prints, and charcoal on paper works. Some of the works have an eerie, distorted effect applied to them, where the charcoal drawings are highlighted by expressive linework.

The Work of Chelsey Tyler Wood

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 06, 2014
Chelsey Tyler Wood’s new series of paintings and drawings place female bodies into cramped wooden crates. Her photorealistic execution not only demonstrates her commitment to craftsmanship and detail, her renderings call into question the assumed ‘realness’ of female portrait photography in the age of Photoshop.
