Paintings by István (Étienne) Sándorfi

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 28, 2015
Istvan (known as Etienne) Sandorfi was born in Budapest in 1948 and died in 2007. His father was director of the American company, IBM, in Hungary. Because of this association he served five years in Stalinist prisons during the Communist regime and his family was deported to an isolated Hungarian village. At the time of the 1956 uprising the Sandorfi family fled the country and became expatriates, first in Germany, then in France. Greatly affected by the violence of the revolution and by the aberration of political systems in general, Istvan took refuge in drawing, and then, at the age of 12, in oil painting.

Josh Keyes: The Artist in Evolution

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 28, 2015
Keyes has always created work with almost apocalyptic visions of a world abandoned, where humans have left behind materialistic remnants of civilization. But recently, his life and art have markedly evolved. In almost striking similarities with his work, he has become rooted in the Pacific Northwest, with the lush environment now on each canvas. Gone are the dioramas, the signature white-background pieces that famously identified him; enter a more personal style, darker, and oddly, paintings suffused with humanity.

Paintings and Collages by Nadira Husain

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 28, 2015
Our relation to images is conditioned by the various pictorial conventions of Western culture. Paris and Berlin-based artist Nadira Husain addresses them in her work, albeit decidedly not from a traditional Western male perspective. Her generally figurative pictures display the influence of both Indian miniatures and the feminist theoretical apparatus.

Vienna Artist David Mascha Breaks Down His Favorite Parts of the European Art Scene in 2015

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 28, 2015
David Mascha’s practice relies upon experimentation, flexibility, and predominantly digital sorcery. Born and based in Vienna, Austria, he has regularly sought out the openness of international brands in order to fully expand his style. His “Mascha magic” is conceptual, detail-oriented, and complex—it slides instinctually from hand to screen, and he embraces spontaneous invention.
