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.

URS FISCHER @ MOCA, LA

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 22, 2013
Spread across MOCA Grand Avenue and The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, the first survey in the United States of the Swiss-born artist Urs Fischer weaves together some of his most memorable and iconic sculptural works while creating an unexpected landscape in both venues.

Joshua Marsh @ Jeff Bailey Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 02, 2013
Just opened this past Friday at Jeff Bailey Gallery in New York is a solo show of paintings by Joshua Marsh entitled As If. The paintings vibrate with glowing hues and simplified still life shapes, functioning both as representational images and distinctly formal fields of color. "Strong color and the play of light dominate Marsh’s paintings, slowly revealing simple objects. Color functions as form, while objects and their surroundings border on dissolution."

Tauba Auerbach "Tetrachromat" @ Wiels Contemporary, Brussels

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 26, 2013
"Tauba Auerbach is considered one of the most innovative painters of our time. Her work collapses traditional distinctions between image, dimensionality and content. Surface and the larger issues surrounding topology have been central concerns in her recent paintings, drawings, photographs and artist books..."

Opening: Christopher Taggart "Cuts and Splits" @ Eli Ridgway Gallery, SF

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 15, 2013
Eli Ridgway Gallery is pleased to present Cuts and Splits, the gallery's second solo exhibition of Bay Area artist Christopher Taggart. Presenting hyper intricate composites of dissected and recombined imagery - (originally personal photographs, playing cards, and government compiled archival data) - Cuts and Splits functions as an investigation into the intensive process of ordering and reordering traditional systems of visual organization.

William Miller Finds Abstract Beauty in a Polluted Brooklyn Canal

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 27, 2013
New York-based photographer William Miller is able to find beauty in the least likely of places, a polluted New York canal. Entitled, Gowanus Canal, his latest series of photographs explores the strange colors, patterns, and reflective oils of a Brooklyn canal.

Sascha Braunig "Wrister, Blister, Plaster" @ Foxy Productions, New York

Juxtapoz // Saturday, January 26, 2013
Sascha Braunig's current solo show at Foxy Productions in New York will be on view until February 9th. This recent body of gouache and oil portraits combine figurative painting with op art that is worth a visit if either of these genres are of particular interest. This isn't the first time we have been mesmerized by these works this month...

Behind the Curtain: Barbara Kasten @ Jessica Silverman Gallery, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 16, 2013
On view until January 26 is Barbara Kasten's Behind the Curtain at Jessica Silverman Gallery in San Francisco. These photographs depict beautiful abstractions of space, light, form, and color that are presented in an unusual gallery arrangement that is very low-lit, itself a worthy subject for one of Kasten's photographs. Definitely worth a visit if you can catch it before the last day.

The Works of John Reuss

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 07, 2013
My work is characterized by contrasts - the juxtaposition of opposites on several levels - which is recognized throughout my paintings. Fine detail, drawn lines and meticulously painted shapes clash with bold brushstrokes, spatters and blurred contours. Soft organic shapes and multifaceted figures meet hard, calculated geometric abstractions.

Paintings by Landon Metz

Juxtapoz // Saturday, December 15, 2012
Landon Metz' recent paintings from the last year incorporate washy minimalist fields of color, at times apparently brushy, and at others more ordered resembling continents upon a map or other ambiguous forms that border on the recognizable but slip away into the abstraction of the canvas. WIth a consistent white background across the entire body of work, Metz plays with varying gradients, degrees of transparency and opacity, and compositional arrangements.
