Juxtapoz // Monday, July 21, 2014
For the last 20 years, Juxtapoz Art and Culture Magazine has stood for the outsiders, to create a place and dialogue for artists who stood outside of the museum programming of the time but were creating substantial and amazing work that needed its own historical context.

In the Magazine: Leif Podhajsky

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 21, 2014
We are all, in our own fashion, constantly collecting. Over time, moments, experiences and visions accumulate within our own cerebral catalogs, compiling a personal database. Events and elements gather in the inner consciousness as we build and house a type of visual anthology. To the creatively inspired, this input can also become an output, almost as effortlessly as it was collected. Leif Podhajsky has mastered this process of visual remixing, creating psychotropic landscapes within his infinitely ethereal imagination. Provoked by defining experiences and visual attractions, Leif arranges these altered perceptions, visually melting reality together with dreamlike repetition and seductively combined overlay.
