Yes, We Too Want to See a Mirrored Skyscraper Hotel in the Swiss Alps

Design // Wednesday, March 25, 2015
We like the Swiss Alps. We think they are one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world, filled with wonderful resorts with classy coffee and treacherous ski runs. Hell, we would go to Zurich right now (not really the Alps, per se, but you get our drift). So we are very much into the creation of a 381-meter skyscraper hotel, built in Vals, Switzerland, designed by Morphosis Architects.

Like a good book, landscape invites willing viewers to immerse themselves in a new world and explore. They invite interactions between people and places, changing perspectives – sparking connections.

Hyper-realistic Doll Children

Photography // Wednesday, March 25, 2015
In her series “Mother Love”, photographer Jamie Diamond spent a year immersing herself within the Reborner community where a group of self-taught female artists hand craft, collect, and treat hyper-realistic child dolls as their own offspring.

Design // Wednesday, March 25, 2015
Sam Friedman was just featured in our February 2015 issue of Juxtapoz, and we have been following his work for the past few years and loved his shows at Library Street Collective and Joshua Liner.

Paint Your Pizza and Other Jonas Lund Concepts

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 25, 2015
Amsterdam-based artist Jonas Lund has many clever tricks up his sleeve and a new show at Steve Turner Gallery in LA. For a recent show, he hired four assistants to make paintings in the gallery based on a set of criteria, later deciding whether to sign or destroy them. He also created many abstract digital paintings with elements remixed by the work of other artists, and using available data, compiled a list and photo installation, The Top 100 Highest Ranked Curators in the World.

Murals y Mas by Spanish Artist Nuria Mora

Street Art // Wednesday, March 25, 2015
Our minds just got blown by the insanely talented, Madrid-based artist Nuria Mora. Her elegant murals are colorful and geometric in a way that creates a conversation between architecture and art. As if the murals weren’t amazing enough, each section on her website reveals more and more talents, all the way down to her sketchbooks, which are beautifully sculptural cut-paper creations.

Seth Armstrong "The Air is Thick" @ Thinkspace Gallery

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 25, 2015
This Saturday, March 28th, Thinkspace Gallery will present The Air is Thick featuring new works by Los Angeles based artist Seth Armstrong. Armstrong’s paintings self-consciously capture a sense of looking, arresting moments with cinematic detail and voyeuristic curiosity. Varying in scale, the paintings offer views that are alternately intimate and vast, moving expertly between the monumental and the minute. Laden with detail and suggestion, each piece offers a moment in the trajectory of a larger narrative, and the viewer is compelled to realign the fractures of these inconclusive moments.
