Juxtapoz Presents: Scott Greenwalt

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 26, 2013
Earlier this year, we published a new book in our ongoing series, New Contemporary, that focuses on painters that both define and help evolve our coverage of painting through our 20 years of publishing. One of the artists that we were most proud to showcase was Scott Greenwalt, an Oakland, California based artist that combines both the natural and the metaphysical, creating a new brand of psychedelic arts with originality and amazing painting chops. We stopped by his studio to get a better glimpse at his work ethic, his plants, and his neighbors. 

Jonas Wood: New Works @ Anton Kern Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 26, 2013
I confess, I'm a huge fan of Jonas Wood's paintings. I was first attracted to his life-sized reporductions of obscure baseball cards, but became even more fascinated by his unique and original take on still-lifes, portraits, and paintings of what appears to be average suburban living rooms. Simply put, Wood does the everyday in a very beautiful way. This month, Wood opened his fourth solo show at Anton Kern Gallery in NYC, featuring portraits of friends, tennis, news rooms, pets, and rooms.

The Social Behavior of Bacteria Explored in Art

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 26, 2013
Israeli physics professor Eschel Ben-Jacobs uses invisible colonies of bacteria in both his science and his art. Using growths in a peteri dish, the scientist/artist highlights the beautiful patterns of the moving bacteria colonies as well as their social intelligence. The result are these incredible psychadelic patterns, paths, and interweaving colorful threads...

Patrick Strattner's Absurd Inventions

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 26, 2013
The Do Nothing Machine came to mind after seeing Patrick Strattner's absurd inventions. Ranging from the "Automatic Upper and Lower Full Mouth Tooth Brush" to the "Hoverering Grocery Shopping Assistant with Leather Hand Lead" these inventions, or as I see them sculptures, are remarkable. These prototypes by Strattner are a great look at form and function and what that might or might mean.
