Clarity Haynes' "The Breast Portrait Project

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 30, 2014
The large-scale paintings I am currenty working on come out of a decade-and-a-half long feminist art project. The Breast Portrait Project exists in the intersections of art and social intervention, merging drawing, painting, artist book production, documentary photography, and writing.

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 28, 2014
It's easy to say that women are the main sunject of Belgian artist Eddy Stevens' vivid photorealistic paintings; yet, his paintings have a distinct emotive edge.

The Collaborative Mind of J. Powers Bowman

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 25, 2014
J. Powers Bowman creates collaborations with himself. Combining his insanely intricate elements of land air and seascapes, with more landscapes, cities and patterns, his illustrations are drawn, photocopied, cut, drawn and reconstituted again- all by him. I don't really know what that means but the result is just as insane as it was to begin with, but more complex. I'm going to go ahead and categorize this under 'blowing my mind.'

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 04, 2014
We love this series of faces composed of pieces of plastic toys by artist Freya Jobbins. Freya was born in Johannesburg, South Africa but grew up in West Sydney, Australia. She see's the toy assemblages as her humorous side and her print making as her 'voice.'
