Looking Back: Kenneth Noland

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
Sometimes a little classic late-modern color field painting is all you need to brighten your day. Some may say abstraction is away to avoid politics in art, but in our eyes, abstraction of this kind is just plain beautiful in it's minimalist embrace of formalism.

Paintings by Mernet Larson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Mernet Larson's paintings are filled with a diverse array of cues that suggest various past artists from De Chirico to Lissitzky. Her most recent three bodies of work (or "three chapters as the title of her show") focus on heads and bodies, places, and narratives.

Colored Pencil Drawings by Kate Russo

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 28, 2012
Kate Russo is an artist working out of Rockland, Maine. Her meticulous and detailed colored pencil on graph paper drawings evoke something about her surroundings in the colder and quieter environment of the northeastern United States. Each work unfolds with repetitive and unrelenting replication of a series of marks and patterns requiring a sort of meditative and hyper-focused state.

Alex Pardee Studio Visit with Brett Amory

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 20, 2012
If you look up the word "amory" on Urban Dictionary, the number one definition states that "amory" is often used to describe Heaven, especially when used to describe the wonderful beacon of light. Though I doubt that oil painter Brett Amory is aware of this at all, as I stare at some of his ethereal and often eerie urban landscape paintings, the definition seems to fit the bill.

The Art of Buddy Nestor

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 13, 2012
Buddy Nestor was an abstract painter until a few years ago when he struck a strange new chord with portraiture that took his work to a new level. Derivative of his abstract style, Nestor's "spiritual x-ray" portraits are intended to remove the mask of beauty to reveal darker, more honest aspects of the personalities of his subjects.

Carl Kleiner's Popsicle Series

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 06, 2012
Carl Kleiner's work always grabs our attention. HIs design aesthetic is a truly captivating combination of simple yet bold compositions and subtle attention to detail. On a very basic level, he knows how to make things look good. Even popsicles made of hard, inedible materials.

Jim Jarmusch & Jozef Van Wissem: The Sun of the Natural World is Pure Fire

Music // Tuesday, August 21, 2012
Still processing what we just saw, but we are glad that we just ate up 10 minutes in a full arthouse, noise rock experience by Jim Jarmusch and Jozef Van Wissem, directed by Diego Barrera. The film is described as referencing "mythology, the elements, and symbolism." Like almost everything. 

Gouache Paintings by Eric Shaw

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 17, 2012
Eric Shaw's colorful gouache paintings depict bold, graphic and pattern-laden spaces that are abstracted and dizzying with very opaque and hard edged forms intertwining across the image.

Edwin Deen: Rainbow Spray Paint Sprinkler

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 06, 2012
Dutch artist Edwin Deen's spray paint sprinkler system that shoots rainbow colors at white walls in order to make a better drippy day has been circulating throughout the web over the past year, and we finally did some investigation about a video of the work, and came across it this morning. Now, if you ever need your bedroom, or perhaps your child's bedroom, covered in rainbows, we have somebody for you to commission. The effect is quite wonderful.
