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.

Paintings by Louise Belcourt

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 21, 2012
In an interview with BOMB Magazine, Louise Belcourt spoke extensively about her paintings, and this following passage in particular grabbed our attention with its thoughts on approaching a canvas. "For one thing, I’m physically moving them around with me, be it to my Canadian studio or my one in Brooklyn because things get finished so slowly. I am painting the forms in such a way to produce as much of a visceral experience as possible."

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.
