We are falling into these new works by Australian illustrator and artist Bec Winnel.

Dean Reynolds "A Way We Go" @ Parlor Gallery, Asbury Park

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 27, 2015
Dean Reynolds is set to open a solo show at Parlor Gallery in Asbury Park, New Jersey, from May 2 through June 7, 2015, with a fresh set of paintings and appreciation for his craft. “The one thing I can say was acquired is a sense of perspective about myself and the work I do. This is not the concrete notion of learning this technique or this way of applying paint. Coming back, I valued the way I work more, slowly bringing a painting to life, carefully crafting a window to another world inspired by reflections of inner experience and metaphorical connections.”

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 27, 2015
Welcome to the fantastic world of Chiho Aoshima (who is part of the great group of Japanese artists under the Kaikai Kiki family). This might just be our future. Who’s to say that as technology advances, as natural disasters rise, as the organic world blends with the manmade, that smartphones will not become smart buildings? That skyscrapers will not stand up and walk among mountains? That ghosts and spirits don’t already float through our world?
