New Paintings from Aleah Chapin's "Aunties Project"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 06, 2015
Aleah is renowned for her ongoing ‘Aunties Project’, which comprises figural depictions of a group of the same women she has known all her life, capturing them unashamedly nude with a playful, exaggerated and Rubenesque figural style. Her new exhibition is centred around a theme that derives from several schools of thought, but predominantly Neopaganism, where each stage in a woman’s life cycle is symbolized. Her new works therefore are multi-generational, observing the female body at differing stages of life, both as separate phases and as part of a larger and necessary whole.

Mister Finch: Textile Artist Who Lives In a Fairytale World

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 05, 2015
Scraps of thread, fabric and paper are stitched and pulled into fairytale creatures looking for new owners and worlds to inhabit.

We've show you his work before, but the Leeds-based artist has been sewing more fantastical creatures since we last checked in...
