David Cata’s Skin As A Canvas

Photography // Tuesday, September 09, 2014
For his photographic work, artist David Catá turns to more alternative mediums, more specifically his own skin. His work draws inspiration from memory and our interactions with the people in our lives. In many of his images, Cata physically stitches the likenesses of people that have made some sort of impression on his life. Cata explains, “Everyone we meet makes us in someway. Their image projects on us, reminding us where we come from. Their lives turn into a part of ours. Every stitch represents them over my skin, physical pain is not a boundary, it unites us more by thinking of the marks on my hand as an affective act, that my thinking, at one time, my hand has touched their hand”.

An Update with Jon Fox

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 09, 2014
Today we check in with UK artist Jon Fox, who was featured in our New Contemporary book last year. Fox will be taking part in group show we are excited about, "Égrégore", at Yves Laroche Gallery in Montreal, Canada later this fall. His work often addresses the conflict of emotion: 'heart against head.' Many of his characters occupy a world of tension and turmoil battling with their own significance while the looming presence of a larger restless energy is at work around them. 

Rajni Perera's "Afrika Galaktika" (and more)

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 09, 2014
A Sri-Lankan born artist whose work floats between Western and Immigrant culture, Rajni Perera's work is an East-West dialogue of ideas, concerning immigrant identity issues (being an immigrant), female sexuality (being a woman), and science fiction and fantasy (being someone who enjoys science fiction and the dreams behind the genres). Currently cross-translating between the visual languages of Indian miniaturist art, Blaxploitation, and the images produced by the Hubble Deep Field Telescope, the work becomes a record of impossible discoveries and mythical creations.

Nuart 2014: The Installations

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 08, 2014
We learned a lot from this year's Nuart festival, and the many questions and conversations we had with artists and organziers alike, was that by the time the installations opened on Saturday to kick of the Nuart exhibition, it was clear that Europe has a group of street and conceptual artists making provocative and challenging works just at a time that the battle between street art and curated muralism has reached a critical mass.
