Informational Posters and Books from a Fictional 1970s British Town

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 03, 2013
Scarfolk is a town stuck in the 1970s and a blog slowly releasing pieces of the town's municipal history. The reworked book covers, posters, and public information ads are humorous and uncannily realistic. 'Certain themes resurface: the municipal, the occult, childhood and school days, totalitarianism and dystopia, memory and nostalgia, societal paranoia and fear of disease, television and radio.'

Ben Hasset's "Dedoublement"

Erotica // Wednesday, April 03, 2013
The talented Ben Hassett shoots the porcelain-skinned Magdalena Frackowiack for the "Dedoublement" editorial in the October 2011 issue of Numero France. This series addresses the theme of doubling, presenting the model multiplied and composited over herself like a visual montage of sorts. Each piece presents a different theme from spiked masks and leather to dark lips and animal furs, generating a dynamic, sex-charged composition of multiples. The beautiful Magdalena seems to take on monumental proportions as her image interacts with itself, sparking chemistry in a strange, sensual crossing of portraits. 

Amir H. Fallah "The Collected" @ Gallery Wendi Norris, SF

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 02, 2013
A great looking show at Wendi Norris in San Francisco, Amir H. Fallah’s “The Collected” draws inspiration from not only the subjects of Renaissance portrait and vanitas paintings, but also the economic models in which those works were produced. Commissioned portraits traditionally involve visual symbols indicating the power, influence, and sophistication of their subjects. In this first exhibition of this ongoing global project, portraits have been commissioned and thereby sold before the opening of this show, which is a business reality rooted in traditions from medieval ateliers and modern galleries alike.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Joshua Marsh @ Jeff Bailey Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 02, 2013
Just opened this past Friday at Jeff Bailey Gallery in New York is a solo show of paintings by Joshua Marsh entitled As If. The paintings vibrate with glowing hues and simplified still life shapes, functioning both as representational images and distinctly formal fields of color. "Strong color and the play of light dominate Marsh’s paintings, slowly revealing simple objects. Color functions as form, while objects and their surroundings border on dissolution."
