The Photography of Maciek Jasik (NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 15, 2012
We have been in a bit of a psychedelic mood on the site in recent days, and when we came across the work of Polish-born, Brooklyn-based photographer Maciek Jasik this morning, we knew we found something that definitely hit us right in the heart. Beautiful portrait compositions, with a sense of mystery behind a rainbow haze.

Balloon Rooms by William Forsythe

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 15, 2012
Normally we would think a room full of hundreds or thousands of balloons would be noisy and annoying, but not when German artist William Forsythe is at the helm. The site-specific work, Scattered Crowd, takes the visitor into a dreamlike, fairy-tale-esque landscape. And hopefully, nobody pops a balloon and ruins the tranquility.

Patrick Dougherty's "Ballroom" at Melbourne's Federation Square

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 15, 2012
Similar to the evasive plant Kudzu here in America, the Australian willow tree has become a nuisance and problem for other vegetation, even affecting the habitat of fish and local wildlife. Dougherty recognizes the over abundance of the willow tree saplings and sticks utilizing them for this outdoor sculpture in part of his “Stickwork” series.

Dilly's (Often) Gorey Portraits

Illustration // Wednesday, November 14, 2012
Thomas "Dilly" Littleson's graphic illustrations almost make blood-spurting wounds seen somehow understated. His muted graphite portraits, punctuated only by splotches of red ink create a horrific world where perfectly-rendered men tear off and gnaw on their own limbs without it seeming even slightly absurd.

Daniel Cartier: Blank to Body Suit in 3 Years

Tattoo // Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Q&A: Kelsey Brookes @ Quint Contemporary Art, San Diego

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 14, 2012
We would not be the first to note that Kelsey Brookes' artistic career did not follow the most traditional path. While attending university, he studied biology instead of painting and drawing, and not until practicing as a microbiologist for a few years and moving to San Diego did Brookes begin his career as a painter.

Opening: Ron English "Crucial Fiction" @ Opera Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 14, 2012
Crucial Fiction, is the name of the new solo show of Ron English in New York City at Opera Gallery. After some delayed caused by hurricane Sandy, we finally could look closely to his new series of paintings that address a fantastical question: What might happen if a 50 year old man created what his 8-year old self wanted: a world of cowboys, indians, and a large group of very strange disposable heroes?
