In LA: Lari Pittman "From A Late Western Impaerium" @ Regen Projects

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 12, 2013
Some shows need to be seen in person, in a big spacious gallery, where gigantic canvases can overwhelm you in their peaceful positioning. And even though we just used a bunch of words that mean there are big paintings hanging at Regen Projects this month in Lari Pittman's "From A Late Western Impaerium," there are also highly detailed drawings and paintings that also suck you into their mysterious language and context. Here are some photos from the opening this past weekend... 

The Art of Fredrik Söderberg

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 12, 2013
Stockholm-based artist Fredrik Söderberg has spent the past years exploring art's connection to the occult world and to different esoteric traditions. Religion, religious experiences and meditation are important parts of his artistic work and his life.  In many of his works "a cosmic abstract expression is paired with an accurate figurative and archetypal style, incorporating pure and intricate Mandela images inspired from Tibetan Buddhism and Native American nature religion and traditional crafts, all meticulously executed in watercolor, mineral colors and gold leaf."

Capture Any Color With SwatchMate Cube

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 12, 2013
Trying to translate a color from the real world into a piece of art or a design can often be quite the challenge. Pushing those the CMYK or RGB sliders around will only get you so close and when is the last time you updated your Pantone set? That's why we were so excited to this; the SwatchMate Cube. As explained on their website, the idea is simple "Place the Cube onto a surface and it will instantly capture its color." Watch the SwatchMate Cube in action after the jump.
