Hair Sculptures by Tress Agoche

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 12, 2012
We woke up this morning to a unique update in our mailbox, a friend sending us pictures of the incredible hair sculptures by French hairdreseer, Tress Agoche. The artists note, "it is a vision of a new era which gives birth to an evolved future where the audience experiences the gift that is woman. In this, we create a capsule of work that becomes timeless and unbound, a vision for future observers to witness. Indefinite and inevitable, this future will exist."

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 12, 2012
Madrid-based Gabriel Moreno's psychedelic figural images almost read like streams of consciousness. With drastic color gradients and multi-layered imagery that both emerge from and envelop his figures, Moreno creates dreamlike scenes in which his subjects' thoughts seem to bleed through their skin.

The Works of Cecilia Carlstedt

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 12, 2012
Combining the linear precision of graphite portraits with the gestural dynamism of watercolor, Swedish illustrator Cecilia Carlstedt creates ethereal paintings that maintain visual roots in the boldness of graphic design.

Paintings by Tom Burckhardt

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 12, 2012
Tom Burckhardt's paintings on cast plastic supports occupy a delicate place in contemporary painting that is self-aware of the discourse surrounding the long-established medium, with many subtle touches to the surfaces reflecting a sense absurdity which accompanies imagery that balances between abstract and representational.

Interesting political piece from Billy Morrow Jackson (1926-2006) of Uncle Sam tattooed with the faces of the "Birmingham Four." This piece, entitled The Tattooed Man, is part of a series of civil rights drawings that were created from 1962-1964, though it still has tremendous implications today (both for civil rights and tattoo).
