"Higher Planes" @ The Tate Gallery, Sydney

Street Art // Monday, August 19, 2013
This Wednesday, August 21st “Higher Planes” will open featuring new paintings and sculptures by Shida at The Tate Gallery in Sydney, Australia. “Arabesque figures coil amidst deciduous branches, as fluid, mountainous panoramas reflect Shida's painterly dynamism. Through Higher Planes, Shida continues to experiment with visual space and landscape painting. Contrasting his traditionally fluorescent palette with phthalo blues, Shida uses layered brushstrokes to create shuffling, otherworldly scenes.”

Intricate Paper Sculptures Rogan Brown

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 19, 2013
Drawing inspiration from natural organic forms, Rogan Brown looks for "patterns and repeated motifs that run through natural phenomena at different scales." Each piece involves a labor-intesive process creating thousands of hand-cut slices. "The finished artefact is really only the ghostly fossilized vestige of this slow, long process of realisation."

Tony Orrico's Penwald Drawings are a series of bilateral drawings in which he explores the use of his body as a tool of measturement to inscribe geometries through movement.

"The Liquid Serpent," Photographs by Nicolas Janowski

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 19, 2013
We love this series of photographs entitled The Liquid Serpent, from Argentinean photographer Nicolas Janowski. Nicolas describes the Amazon, where the photographs were taken, as "neither man nor animal. She is nature's hybrid. Mirrors of man's contradictions, of a world to which she belongs and yet remains distant. The Amazon bears forth over-stimulated cities pervaded by a savage force, which exist simultaneously as survival mechanisms...

Paintings by Micah Ganske

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 19, 2013
This morning we take a look at Micah Ganske's current body of work, "Tomorrow Land." "The images start with the simple juxtaposition of large shadows over arial views of depressed and abandoned locations." These shadows are things that symbolize, what the artist refers to as, "Aspirational Technology" and represent "the progress of our technological civilization and the glory which a high-technology future would bring."
