Stunning Paintings by China's Zhang Linhai

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 19, 2015
Chinese artist Zhang Linhai's paintings are surreal but politically charged pieces of art that take the anonymous, homogenous character and places them in either isolation or repetitive masses. The result is an unblinding support for an ominous power.  

The Work of Alejandrina Herrera

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 19, 2015
Mexican artist Alejandrina Herrera creates beautiful scenes on the basis of drawing, collage and watercolor. Telling stories about people, animals, and how they interact with their surroundings, Herrera likes to include a touch of irony and melancholy by playing with the size of things and spaces.

In the Magazine: Michelle Guintu

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 19, 2015
Picture Michelle Guintu rolling in R. Kelly’s private jet, draped in a pink mink, sipping Cristal to the sounds of “I believe I can fly” (obviously). This is most likely how she’ll end up. She just designed a T-shirt for Skrillex. Who knows what’s next? She paints throwback icons and celebrities, reminding us to show respect, while elevating their memory and paying tribute to their influence on young, malleable teenage identities worldwide...

Julio Cesar Morales' Undocumented Interventions

Illustration // Tuesday, May 19, 2015
Artist, curator and educator Julio César Morales' ongoing ink and watercolor series "Undocumented Interventions" are sourced from real discoveries by US Customs and Border Protection, presenting a surreal view of attempted border crossings and human trafficking. They depict children concealed in piñatas, washing machines, train and car seat cushions, stereo speakers and other unlikely spaces to transport a person.

Meditative and Surreal Sculptures by Tracey Sarsfield

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 19, 2015
In doing some research yesterday, we came across this amazing body of work that Tracey Sarsfield showed at ANCA Gallery in Dickson, which is a suburb of "Inner North of Canberra, Australia." As MyModernMet notes, "Composed of resin, paint, fiberglass, and vinyl, the figures are connected by a number of bold black wires, which form an intricate pattern along their bodies before extending outward in a profoundly connective fashion."

Dina Oganova's "I Am Georgia"

Photography // Monday, May 18, 2015
We became aware of Dina Oganova aka Dikarka’s (Wild Girl) photographs when she was nominated this year for PDN’s 30, a well deserved award for a photographer with an innate sense for making imagery. In her series I Am Georgia, which she began as a student, Oganova beautifully documents the post-Soviet generation in the country of Georgia.

Jenny Morgan "All We Have Is Now" @ Driscoll Babcock, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 18, 2015
Jenny Morgan has been both a cover of our print edition and our new Hyperreal book, and we are excited about her newest show, "All We Have Is Now," opening at Driscoll Babacock in NYC on May 14. As the gallery notes, "This new series of paintings present amorphous, yet graphically stark figures rendered in a richly saturated prismatic array of colors. Centered on themes of life, death, and rebirth, Morgan’s works question how we relate to our past and challenge us to live in the present." We can't wait to see the whole new body of work!

Thomas McMahan melts with Flying Lotus' "A Damaging Daydream"

Music // Monday, May 18, 2015
This is a "Short film about love, dreams, and loss." At first, we thought this was a proper music video for the Flying Lotus track "A Damaging Daydream," but it turns out this is a short by Thomas McMahan that was "made utilizing rare earth metals, A nasa developed oil, and a few things found in various thrift stores. All effects for this were achieved without a computer. All done with practical special effects."

Inge Morath & Enoc Perez @ Danziger Gallery, NYC

Photography // Monday, May 18, 2015
Danziger Gallery is pleased to present a two-person show of photographs by Inge Morath and photo collages by Enoc Perez. Created half a century apart, both works share a sense of humor, an interest in concealment, and a delight in cutting and making shapes out of paper.
