Juxtapoz // Friday, February 22, 2013

The Works of Kevin Peterson

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 22, 2013
We have always enjoyed the works of Kevin Peterson. His work is about the varied journeys we take through life. It’s about growing up and living in a world that is broken.

Paying Homage to the Potential in the Inexplicable with Paintings by Adam Friedman

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 22, 2013
In Portland-based artist Adam Friedman's work, rules of perspective, distance, and light are bent. Space can become a solid object and places are folded on top of one another. Millions of years are compacted into a single instant and rocks become fluid.
