The Works of Valentin van der Meulen

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 08, 2013
The work of French artist Valentin van der Meulen has recently caught our eye. His blurred and torn paintings are full of emotion and tension that transport the viewer to a dark place. Recently, Meulen did a collaboration with fellow French artist David Mesguich. The collaborative piece, seen in the gallery, features a 3-headed geometric sculpture, reveals a new dimension to Meulen's already impresssive work.

Illustration // Monday, January 07, 2013
'In this work, Hannah Stouffer is exploring the concept of land, escape and nostalgic solitude within a space.

The Works of John Reuss

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 07, 2013
My work is characterized by contrasts - the juxtaposition of opposites on several levels - which is recognized throughout my paintings. Fine detail, drawn lines and meticulously painted shapes clash with bold brushstrokes, spatters and blurred contours. Soft organic shapes and multifaceted figures meet hard, calculated geometric abstractions.
