The Works of Francesco Lo Castro

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 05, 2014
The multicolor paintings of Florida-based artist Francesco Lo Castro recently caught our attention. Using oils, acrylics, spray paint, silkscreen as well as layered epoxy resin and gold leaf, hes created a technicolor word of geometrics.

In Conversation with Julie Oppermann

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 31, 2014
On the sidewalk just outside the Miami Projects art fair, I could immediately recognize a colorful painting by Julie Oppermann, as it pulsed waves of color through the window from the Mark Moore booth. Standing in front of the large work, my mind worked to establish comprehension of an all over pattern.

Abstractions by Mark Warren Jacques

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 03, 2014
“That personality, that story, can only be told through colors, or their juxtaposition against the rest of the painting. That’s the only way they gain context.” So says Mark Warren Jacques, a fine artist born in Columbus, Ohio who has shown at White Walls, Breeze Block, and Cinders Gallery. We have been paying attention to his fantastic and colorful abstractions for the past few years, and we suggest looking into his print selections.

Clare Rojas @ Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
A quite nice example of an artist who has worked in abstraction for a few years now with minimal figurative elements going fully into abstract expressionist work with great results. Currently showing at Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld in NYC is this untitled solo exhibition of 24 new paintings by Clare Rojas. As the gallery notes, "It is Rojas’s first showing in New York since her hiatus from painting and this reintroduction reveals her evolution into the visual language of abstract expression."

Abstract Paintings by Jennifer Coates

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 15, 2013
We are enjoying the abstract paintings of New York-based artist Jennifer Coates this morning. Coates' metaphysical paintings utilize the conventions of landscape as a vehicle for hallucinatory visions and psychological spaces. Expanses of sky or sea coalesce into reflective pools of paint; intricate geometric galaxies warp into ecstatic vortexes, and tiny specs of color form clusters of luminescent light.

The Abstract Wall Murals of Gerhard Mayer

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 03, 2013
We wrote about the works of Gerhard Mayer last month, but today we look at more of his abstract, large-scale ink drawings: Nuremberg-based artist Gerhard Mayer creates large-scale paintings, collages, drawings, sculptures, and wall pieces. His wall pieces are creating using China ink and his own unique mathematical rules. Having been interested in elementary particles and physics for a long time, his work is made following strict regularities.

Fiction Alters Form @ .T.F.R. Gallery, Leucadia

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 29, 2013
  .T.F.R. Gallery presents Fiction Alters Form, featuring artists Joshua Miller, Matt Rich, and Joe Yorty. In selecting Matt Rich and Joe Yorty for the exhibition, Joshua Miller (who we asked to choose work to be put in relation to his) wanted to consider the ways in which symmetries of form gave way to asymmetries of intention. Formally, all three artists conflate expectations of two and three dimensional space, painting and sculpture, surface and volume. However, beyond those formal congruencies, the material choices, vantage point, and intention of each artist diverges.
