Casey Gray "Of Land & Sea" @ Circuit 12, Dallas

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 04, 2014
San Francisco-based artist Casey Gray is one of the most exciting artists we have had a chance to cover over the past few years. He has a way of turning a painting of a flower or a table setting or a beach scene into a psychedelic blitz of color and geometric dizziness. When we first spoke to Casey Gray, his palette was definitely a reflection of growing up in California. “Growing up fifteen minutes from the beach...

'I have been working diligently for months on paintings for a show that I consider one to be of the most important shows in my career yet.

Self-Dissections by Danny Quirk

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 03, 2014
Massachusetts-based artist Danny Quirk specializes in photo realistic watercolors of anatomical structures, painting what cameras cannot capture with quite as much precision and delicacy as the artist's hand. Quirk's work combines classic poses in dramatic chiaroscuro lighting with a contemporary twist, creating portraits of self-discovery through dissection. This intimate uncovering of the structures that lay beneath the skin mirrors humanity's quest for self-understanding, whether in an emotional, spiritual, or physical sense.
