Peter Millard Homage to Hulk Hogan

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 26, 2012
We love being weirded out in the morning. Having a sort of tripped-out crayon-created homage to Hulk Hogan will do that to you. Peter Millard, a student at Royal College of Art, took the concept of one of the greatest actors of his time, Hulk Hogan, and gave him an animated tribute. Weird, funny, bizarre, and oh so good.

New Paintings by MARGARITA GEORGIADIS

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 26, 2012
We just ran into a new body of work from Margarita Georgiadis, who just showed at Edwina Corlette Gallery in Brisbane, Australia this past May. A mixture of abstract flashes mixed with figurative elements of flashing moments caught on canvas, Georgiadis' work is both haunting and refreshing, a nice collection of oil on canvas works that are both psychological and physical.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Mark Wallinger has a lengthy record of major exhibitions and accomplishments, which is no surprise when looking at the British artist's current exhibition at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead, England.

IN L.A.: Dietrich Wegner @ Robert Berman Gallery

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 25, 2012
This past weekend we stopped by the opening reception of Skin Deep Dietrich Wegner's latest solo exhibition at Robert Berman Gallery. Every society accumulates contradictions amidst their ideals. Dietrich Wegner employs those contradictions, situating opposites together in sculpture and photography that feed on the friction between two conflicting ideas. When an image stands in limbo, between associations, it occupies a flexible place in our mind. Photos and more after the jump.

Works by Melanie Bonajo

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 25, 2012
Photo montage and collage have the inherent power to juxtapose and arrange strange and foreign subjects creating new associations from unlikely pairings, a re-occuring motivation and end goal for artist's working in this medium. The result from this process is usually a variety of relationships that are telling of particular aspects of the given subjects.
