Wrapped in Plastic: Paintings by Robin Eley

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 04, 2012
"My paintings are essays of observation, born from a relentless examination of my mileu. Rather than shout, my paintings speak softly. Their messages, both personal and profound, audible only to those who make the effort to listen. By documenting time, I attempt to slow its quickening pace; such that for the briefest of moments there is just the viewer, my painting and the space between."

Wood Sculptures by Lee Stoetzel

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 04, 2012
Lee Stoetzel creates these fantastic near life-sized wooden sculptures of everyday objects, such as Jeep Wranglers, old Mac computers, fast food meals, and VW buses. Okay, a VW bus is not an everyday object, and we haven't eaten fast food in months if not years, but you get what we are saying. The works are made of cypress wood and various bits of hardware to attach everything together.

The Snow House

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 03, 2012
Yes, please, we will live here. This is the Snow House, a place where showering might be a tad exposed, but the layout and architectural set-up is undeniable. The house was constructed by Milan based design firm, Santambrogio, and is built throughout with a blue hued glass. The book cases, bed, and most everything is constructed with that same blue hued glass. Again, where do you shower?
