Erynn Richardson "Sacred & Haunted" @ Bermudez Projects, LA

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 28, 2015
Call her “The Re-Animator.” In her new show at Bermudez Projects in Downtown Los Angeles, Erynn Richardson brings back to life the deer that hunters across America stalk, kill, stuff, and display; and turns them into nigh-religious icons.

Objects often become metaphors for power and class; owning or displaying them weaves a narra

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 28, 2015
Matthew Kaliner, a Harvard University lecturer uses the "drip method" that we all learned as kids on the beach to create otherworldly sculptures on the beach. In an interview with The Atlantic, Kaliner says that he is "motivated entirely by the sheer joy of playing on the beach, and making something out of what I can find that day." Although he enjoys watching the castles get swept away, Kaliner aims "to make make my castles more resilient to waves by using sticks, anchored by elaborate braces I dig underground," the sand architect explained.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 27, 2015
Cathie Bleck will be opening a new exhibition, "Avance," at Firecat Projects in Chicago this evening. The new pieces (over 30 paintings, journals and stone lithographs) are part of an ongoing series that explores the vulnerable nature of the human spirit and its immense resilience in the face of adversity," Bleck told us.

These questions articulate a moment in time when a transition is taking place, when the world inside us changes

An Update with Winnie Truong

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 27, 2015
Winnie Truong draws hair better than anyone, and her subjects are soulful and strange, but the way we categorize them in our minds says more about us than them. They are otherworldly and they seem comfortable being hairy, so who are we to judge? Winnie was featured in our May, 2014 issue, which is available in the "back issues" section of our web store.

Nuria Riaza's Ballpoint Illustrations

Illustration // Thursday, August 27, 2015
Nuria Riaza's blue ballpoint drawings are meticulous, in every sense of the word. Not only are they exquisitely rendered with detailed, fine linework, but each piece displays the artist's very careful deliberation and composition (her grids of collected knick-knacks are a neat freak's dream). Riaza graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from the Universidad Politécnica in Valencia.
