Katharina Grosse stands for colour-intensive, multi-layered, expansive painting, which moves into space, appropriates spaces or opens up spaces for the very first time. With the spray technique characteristic of her, the artist applies colour precisely not only to two-dimensional surfaces but also to undermaterials such as earth and plants, furniture, clothing and architecture.

We are huge fans of the work of Kim Keever here at Juxtapoz, and have had a chance to showcase the works on the site in the past. We love this "New Abstraction" series, "formed by paint being allowed to free flow through the water and form volumetric patterns." Keever has a great essay about the new works as well that we have here for your inspiration.

Skarstedt London is delighted to announce Strangers, the first U.K exhibition by American artist Justin Adian. The exhibition will feature a series of new paintings and will coincide with Frieze London. Strangers is a meditation on Adian’s relationship with his works and the transformation that occurs once they have left the familial environment of the studio to venture out in the world: “Once something leaves the studio it changes, kinda moves onto its own life, its own scene.”

Eddie Martinez has long been a favorite of the Juxtapoz staff, and over the past 5 or so years, as his work has become more and more abstract, it has become more surreal and powerful in the process. This week, the NYC-based artist opens "Nomader" at Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles, featuring a collection of paintings and abstract, found object sculptures.

Ed. Varie is pleased to present Neverending Index, a solo-exhibition of recent work by artist Anna Sörenson, with opening reception on Thursday April 10th from 6-9pm. Neverending Index is a conceptual project that began in 2010 exploring the ideas of painting with water based media, collage, and text. The work explores a narrative that is more than an ordinary scrupulous examination of one's consciousness but also a reflection of Sörenson 's process and the relationship between mediums.

We are going to start this post off with saying we have absolutely no idea what is going on here. But somehow, William S. Burroughs, at the age of 82, shooting guns at t-shirts with his own name on it is sort of some form of abstract art. Or just weird. Maybe just weird.
