Call her “The Re-Animator.” In her new show at Bermudez Projects in Downtown Los Angeles, Erynn Richardson brings back to life the deer that hunters across America stalk, kill, stuff, and display; and turns them into nigh-religious icons. Richardson, who earned her MFA at California State University, Long Beach, says, “In my artistic practice I explore how people use objects to tell stories about themselves.

Sand "Castles" Like You've Never Seen http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/sand-castles-like-you-ve-never-seen http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/sand-castles-like-you-ve-never-seen Sand
Matthew Kaliner, a Harvard University lecturer uses the "drip method" that we all learned as kids on the beach to create otherworldly sculptures on the beach. In an interview with The Atlantic, Kaliner says that he is "motivated entirely by the sheer joy of playing on the beach, and making something out of what I can find that day." Although he enjoys watching the castles get swept away, Kaliner aims "to make make my castles more resilient to waves by using sticks, anchored by elaborate braces I dig underground," the sand architect explained. "Watching the castle rising above the waves is a real treat—and that's always when they look best.”

If you live in San Francisco or have visited here recently, it is likely that you traveled down Market Street and encountered a wonderful addition to the city's public art. Our friend and local bay area artist Lauren YS teamed up with Tatiana Suarez and Caratoes to paint a beautiful mural at Market and South Van Ness as part of Jansport's #LiveOutside campaign. We stopped by a couple of times to catch their progress, but for those of you that weren't able to or aren't able to see it in person, follow Jansport's video series document the 5-day process of painting a 55-foot wall!

The new pieces (over 30 paintings, journals and stone lithographs) are part of an ongoing series that explores the vulnerable nature of the human spirit and its immense resilience in the face of adversity," Bleck told us.

An Update with Winnie Truong http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/an-update-with-winnie-truong http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/an-update-with-winnie-truong An Update with Winnie Truong
Winnie Truong draws hair better than anyone, and her subjects are soulful and strange, but the way we categorize them in our minds says more about us than them. They are otherworldly and they seem comfortable being hairy, so who are we to judge? Winnie was featured in our May, 2014 issue, which is available in the "back issues" section of our web store.
