Jacub Gagnon: "Worlds Collide" @ Thinkspace

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 20, 2014
Exhibiting a technically meticulously detailed array of acrylic paintings, Toronto based artist Jacub Gagnon opens his solo show at Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles on Saturday June, 21st. He creates these exacting works with minute brushstrokes and layers, creating tensions between the artificial and the natural that reach to realms of the propped, plausible and absurd. Illuminating the undeniably effective visual contrasts with a stark black background, Gagnon stages a beautiful realistic portrayal of characters. The odd, the absurd and the frictions of nature intrigue and attract while showcasing impressive talent.

Illustration // Friday, June 20, 2014

"One to Nothing" by Irina Rozovsky

Photography // Thursday, June 19, 2014
Irina Rozovsky traveled to Israel for the first time with the arguably impossible goal of photographing from a neutral perspective. Her intention was to produce pictures that would subvert viewer’s preconceived ideas about the country, while honoring the natural aesthetic of the region. Rozovsky’s photographs succeed in their ability to artistically function as neither an anxious tourist, nor politically driven journalist. The series resulted in her book, One to Nothing.
