Hitchcock Magazine: la revue du suspense Collection, 1961-75

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
We randomly came across a cover of the French version of Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, a printed publication that lasted from 1961-1975... the French version that is. Not sure if they went a little more salacious with the French version, but a lot of these covers feature some amazing illustrations and paintings. Even Patricia Highsmith wrote for them... not bad. 

Roger Weiss: Human Dilatations_Suspension

Erotica // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
A few weeks ago, we showed you a series of Roger Weiss works around distorted human bodies, and today we have this fantastic series, "Human Dilatations_Suspension". As Weiss notes of this work, "Human Dilatations_Suspension is a glimpse of the lack the contemporary human being, bared of the two elements that distinguish his quest..."

The Moss Men

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
The backstory: " Since 1397, the so-called 'Moss Men' are walking around the small town of Béjar, Spain once a year." For this series, photographer David Vintiner and art director Gemma Fletcher documented the festival of 'El Hombre de Musgo', and found out, "Camouflaged, they then crawled through the surrounding landscape unseen by the lookouts on the city walls. 

Cross-bred Balloon Creatures

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
We are trying to take in what Sarah Deremer is doing on this project, but we like it. What designboom notes is that "for her digital series ‘balloon zoo’, los angeles-based artist sarah deremer has realized a realistic rendition of childhood-favorite inflatables." So we have balloon sculptures being improved as realistic animals. Okay, we approve...

Everyday Objects, just bigger and pretty amazing

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
We like what is going on here: artist Rómulo Celdrán has taken everyday objects and moments, down to the bite marks on a pen cap, and created larger-than-life sculptures. Not large in a multi-storied sense, but scaled large and with so much detail, so much realistic elements, that its quite incredible.

A Neverending Appreciation for Francesca Woodman

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
You may know that in 1981, at only at the age 22, Francesca Woodman killed herself. You may also know that these works, made with such powerful conviction and vision at such a young age, have had an immense an lasting influence over hundreds if not thousands of photographers since. This work continues to amaze us, and we wanted to look at some today.

Metamorphosis by Frederic Fontenoy

Photography // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
Born in 1963, Frederic Fontenoy has been working on his first series representation of the body, considering the photographic gesture as artistic in itself. From "Metamorphosis" in 1988, he plays with the reference to reality due to this medium, and readily relates to the distortions of Andre Kertesz and "The Anatomy of the image" of Hans Bellmer.

Jeremy Fish "Anger Management" @ Black Book Gallery, Denver

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 13, 2015
We are huge fans and friends with Jeremy Fish, who has graced our cover twice in the past and continues to be one of the mainstays of San Francisco. Not sure if all our readers know, but last year, Fish had to undergo two brain surgeries. As Black Book notes, "the 18 new pieces featured in Anger Management were produced in the 6 months between two brain surgeries undergone by the artist. After an aneurysm was found in his brain last November, Jeremy has focused on avoiding further agitating the artery through reducing his stress levels. These works are a result of visiting with an anger management specialist and rearranging his lifestyle so as not to threaten his health." Each of these works is a stunning testament to this time.
