Trailer: Chris Cunningham for Warpaint "Love Is to Die" Documentary

Music // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
Chris Cunningham is a visionary music video director, creating visuals that can potentially outlive the music its made for (although the music of Aphex Twin and others is quite good and longlasting in the mind). Warpaint is a band of 4 women from Los Angeles that make melodic art rock music. Cunningham followed Warpaint for two years and the result is Love Is To Die, a documentary of sorts that we have a teaser for today...

Parra "And Wait for Something to Happen" @ Ruttkowski 68, Cologne

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
Always a favorite in the Juxtapoz office, Parra just opened a new solo show at Ruttkowski 68 Gallery in Cologne, Germany, titled And Wait For Something to Happen. The show features 11 paintings, 11 drawings, and porcelain editions made in collaboration with the great Case Studyo. The work again shows the Amsterdam-based Parra's bold, powerful, confident, and simply elegant work, and playful subject matter.

Hand-Cut Photographs by Justine Khamara

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
At first glance the work of Melbourne-based artist Justine Khamara looks like it was digitally manipulated. Justine actually hand-cuts the photographs and rearranges and collages them. Seeking to disrupt photography's smooth, two-dimensional surfaces, she collages and builds sculptures entirely out of photographs. 

Drawings by Samuel Gomez

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
New York City-based artist Samuel Gomez creates large-scale graphite and ink drawings in a surreal-steampunk style. Drafting his narratives into worlds made of highly elaborated machine-like entanglements, Gomez's pieces are incredibly detailed and look to comment on the negative effects of corporations and capitalism.

Photographs by Lee Materazzi

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
The sculptural quality in the make-up of Lee Materazzi's photographs can likely be attributed to her degree in sculptures. Based on everyday life, the photographs transcend the documentation quality of life to elevated concepts about living. "The photographs take the mundane tasks and chores of our existence and express the way in which they affect our consciousness."

Erbossyn Meldibekov's Painted Ceramic Plates

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
Kazakhstani artist Erbossyn Meldibekov has been examining the 'collapse of civility within a post 9/11 environment through a range of diverse mediums, our favorite though, is his series of painted ceramic plates featuring various pack animals with weapons (among other things) strapped to their backs. We want a set...

Nathan James' Unforgiving World

Erotica // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
'Born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Nathan James spent much of his life in the Toronto area before moving to London, UK where he currently lives and works. His current series of paintings, Creepshow, is based on the idea of Pessimist Pop. A reaction to the highly-polished, busy, celebratory work of Koons, Murakami et al, James' paintings deal in the same sort of bold shapes and cultural iconography, but look at the underbelly of these images and contextualizes them in a real, unforgiving world...'
