Nychos, Horfee, Blade and John Howard were all doing new works this past week in the small Danish town, and it looks like a school got a touch of the Weird. Summer is here, and the European continent is getting new public works!

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 10, 2013
Dutch artist Rosa Verloop as found an interesting use for stockings. By molding, folding, and squeezing common nylon stockings, Verloop has created interesting, layered facial structures. She uses regular pins to keep the stockings in the shape of a facial structure and her portraits sit at an "uncomfortable place in the life cycle between birth and death."

Johanna Goodman's Celebrity Faces

Illustration // Sunday, June 09, 2013
Johanna Goodman's series of shockingly colorful celebrity portraits capture the personality and dynamism of these entertainment mastheads with accuracy and flair. Using oil pastels, Goodman fleshes out the visages of these faces we have become so familiar with, stratifying them by bump, ridge and recess. Goodman is an illustrator who calls her work "award-winning, bleeding edge, shockingly new, tantalizingly fresh"  and "classically classy." She has worked for Rollign Stone, The New Yorker, Spin, Esquire, Sports Illustrated, Playboy and many more. 

Cecily Brown's Crowds of Flesh

Erotica // Sunday, June 09, 2013
Cecily Brown's "Untitled" (2012), now on display in the Gagosian Gallery, examines the subject of the nude ensemble, drawing at the same time from history painting and pop culture. In fleshy yet chromatically sober color pairings, Brown creates clusters of diverse and invidiuated nudes that begin to crowd the painted scene as if from some unnamed purgatory. Fragmented figures and faces dissolve into kaleidoscopic concentrations of grey, purple and sienna. These paintings play out Brown's persistent fascination with the tension between bold painterly gesture and figurative content.
