Paintings and Drawings by Jesse Fillingham

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 10, 2013
Pasadena-based artist Jesse Fillingham works to explore themes of "myth, introspection, creation, and wizardry." We like those themes, and his series of drawings depicting "an alternate creation myth composed of trees of strife, knowledge and life, as well as ephemeral libidinous pritis - robed men ponder and wander through graphic landscapes."

Photographs by Ruben Brulat

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 10, 2013
Photographer Ruben Brulat has traveled via land only, through Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Japan and Mongolia for his latest series entitled Paths. "The bodies of people become friends, performing - not without difficulties - leaving wounds, marks, and souvenirs from a time before heading towards different paths, (after sharing one for a while). The Bodies of these people become a part of the accidental and dramatic landscapes, like the trees, the rocks or the black sands of gunung bromo." 

Chandelier Casts Shadow of a Forest of Trees

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 10, 2013
Collaboration between the artists Thyra Hilden and Pio Diaz has produced this wonderful light sculpture, Forms in Nature, that likens a ball of tree branches. The light source in the center illuminates the ball and casts a forest of trees onto the floor, walls, and ceiling! Hilden & Diaz describe the piece, "The shadows engulf the room and transforms the walls into unruly shadows of branches, bushes, and gnarled trees. Mirrorings are thrown out upon the walls and ceilings provide weak Roschach-like hints of faces, life and flow of consciousness."

Pair Re-Creates the Camera Lucida, the first in nearly a century

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 10, 2013
The Camera Lucida is an optical device that was designed by Sir William Hyde Wollaston and used a prism to project an image onto paper for tracing. Some claim that many of the Old Masters used them but they now are only found in antique stores and on EBay. Come Pablo Garcia and Golan Levin who recently teamed up to design the NeoLucida with the belief that it will "profoundly change how people see, how they draw, and how they think about art."
