Opening: Mars-1 "Toward A Distant Dawn" @ Martha Otero, LA

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 09, 2014
As you maybe saw on the site last week, we did a studio visit with San Francisco-based artist, Mars-1, as he prepared for his solo show, "Toward A Distant Dawn," at Martha Otero Gallery in Los Angeles. That show opened this past Saturday, and we got in the old van and drove down to the Southland to see our neighbor show off his new paintings and impressive bronze sculptures. Don't try and lift those. They are heavy.

Sieben on Life: Two for Life

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 09, 2014
I've had two art show concepts in the back of my mind for numerous years now, and chances are I'll never actually have the time or motivation to execute either of them myself. Rather than letting them disintegrate like dusty skeletons in my closet, I thought I'd share the ideas with you guys in case somebody out there wants to run with either concept...
