Leandro Erlich's "Dalston House" Optical Illusion

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 27, 2013
While we wish we could experience most of the things we post in-person, every once in a while we come across something (often installations) that makes us even more jealous of those who get to see it for themselves.

The piece uses a wall of giant mirrors to make it seem as though visitors are climbing and jumping along the vertical wall of a house!

Richard Diebenkorn "The Berkeley Years" @ de Young, SF

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 27, 2013

I wanted to follow a tradition and extend it.” And the San Francisco native’s own words start you off on what should be a languorous visit to familiar places like Chabot Valley in Richard Biebenkorn’s The Berkeley Years, now showing at San Francisco’s de Young Museum. But even more familiar and very compelling is a personal journey that can be experienced through this painter’s eyes.
