Andrew Schoultz "Blown to Bits" @ Hosfelt Gallery, SF

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 09, 2014
Excited for this one: our good friend Andrew Schoultz's first solo exhibition at Hosfelt Gallery transforms 7,000 square feet of gallery space with an installation of sculpture, paintings and works on paper that charts a new trajectory in his work. After showcasing a new direction with his show at Ruttowski in Cologne earlier this Fall, we can't wait to see the (partial) homecoming of the now LA-based Schoultz. 

Stacey Rozich "Shrine" @ Roq La Rue Gallery, Seattle

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 09, 2014
Stacey Rozich just opened a new body of work, "Shrine," at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle last weekend, and as we catch up on the post-Basel madness, this was one show that stood out. In the new body of work,  Rozich describes the the trappings and rituals of death, painting figures standing or laying near ornamental mausoleums and gravestones. They are joined by a cast of skeletal or animal demon spirits that comfort them, antagonize them, or stand guard as they begin their journey through death. Though they might be protective, they are also tricksters – dancing, drinking, and reveling in their non-corporeal existence in spite of ours.

We've looked at the Moleskine drawings of Kerby Rosanes before, and his newest update of work is his strongest to date. As his site states, "Philippines-based illustrator Kerby Rosanes works mainly with ordinary black pens to magically illustrate his “doodle” world. The 23-year old artist considers his art as a personal hobby which turned out to be his part-time freelance work after being recognized by various design blogs, international magazines and online communities."

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 09, 2014
These images, taken from scrolls produced during the Japanese Edo period (1603-1868), depict he-gassen or "farting competitions." Yes, that's right, farting. According to the website Naruhodo, "Similar drawings were used to ridicule westerners towards the end of the Edo period, with images depicting the westerners blown away by Japanese farts."

Stefan Bleekrode's Cityscapes are Drawn From Memory

Illustration // Tuesday, December 09, 2014
Stefan Bleekrode's paintings can best be described as snapshots of things he's seen when travelling or just going through his everyday routine, small bits of beauty in familiar settings.
