Paintings and Performance Art by Olivier de Sagazan

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Congo-born, France-based artist Olivier de Sagazan integrates painting, photography, sculpture and performance into a very unique hybrid practice! His existential performance series, "Transfiguration," involves the artist building layers of clay and paint onto his face and body and then shedding them to reveal "an animalistic human who is seeking to break away from the physical world." 

Sculptures by Zhang Huan

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Chinese artist Zhang Huan has become well known for his performance art as well as his sculptural works. This morning we take a look through a collection of some of his sculptures including this 2011 piece titled Q Confucius No.2, a 'massive silica-gel, mechanical bust of an unclothed Confucius rests in a rectangular pool.' The sculpture's breast rises and falls as if the object were breathing!

Born in Chicago, Witz has been exhibiting his paintings for the better part of two decades.The following are few selections from his series “Mosh Pits.”

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 15, 2013
French artist Carine Brancowitz immortalizes her daily life on paper, creating a series of works 'combining the purity and passion of adolescent anxiety, an obsessive attention to detail, the uncluttered elegance of lines,' and the severity of the compositions.

Dandelion Wine by Karina Eibatova

Erotica // Tuesday, October 15, 2013
A gorgeous, ephemeral video piece that is more a state of art and pure erotic aesthetics. Made by Karina Eibatova and Oletis for a necklace called "Easy Ease." Ray Bradbury would be proud.

The Works of Brazil-based Finok

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 14, 2013
In our November 2013 issue, on newsstands this week (or now), we have an exclusive conversation with one of Brazil's most exciting and talented artists, FINOK. For years we have loved his intricate style, both in his unique graffiti characters and now his beautiful canvases, and with an upcoming new body of work at Smith Galeria in Sao Paulo this November, we felt it was great timing to see his work in our printed edition.

Jenny Morgan "How To Find A Ghost" @ Driscoll Babcock, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 14, 2013
DRISCOLL BABCOCK GALLERIES presents Jenny Morgan: How To Find A Ghost, Morgan’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. In this new body of work, Morgan pushes her transcendent figurative paintings to a larger scale, the pure magnitude of which amplifies the psychological intimacy of her work. Despite the immediacy of her figures, Morgan’s deep insights into her subjects emerge slowly over time; their blurred features, sanded outlines, and unique coloration push her portraits toward a revelatory abstraction.
