Leo Eguiarte: Holographic Conjuration

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 26, 2014
"Leo Eguiarte is a Los Angeles-based multimedia artist. Holographic conjuration is a visual metaphor for the illusionary state we as people are subjected to by our material desires. The work addresses issues of perceived power and its consolidation by a selected minority, the psychological, social, spiritual, and cultural effects of which are visible on both micro and macro levels..."

Photography // Thursday, June 26, 2014
We love this series so much, we wanted to take a look again. Gene Guynn is an artist from California. Guynn works primarily in film, developing it himself in his darkroom. His 'In The Woods' series sets female models amidst various forms of flora and fauna, both as intimate studio portraits and on location in a dreamy forest setting.

The Work of Christina Pettersson

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 26, 2014
Christina Pettersson explores resurrection and savage demise on a grand scale once reserved for history painting. Her large graphite works on paper reference classic mythology and literature, and include herself as the recurring female figure surrounded by animals, most particularly birds.

Ralph Steadman's "Animal Farm" Illustrations

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 26, 2014
We've previously posted Ralph Steadman's illustrations for Alice in Wonderland, today check out his 1995 illustrations for the 50th anniversary of George Orwell's Animal Farm.

"The chief danger to freedom of thought and speech at this moment is not the direct interference of … any official body. If publishers and editors exert themselves to keep certain topics out of print, it is not because they are frightened of prosecution but because they are frightened of public opinion. In this country intellectual cowardice is the worst enemy a writer or journalist has to face."
