Photoreal Paintings by Alyssa Monks

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 05, 2012
We have shown you the photoreal paintings of Brooklyn-based painter Alyssa Monks in the past in our Erotica section, and today we were really enjoying her new works painted in 2012. As the years have gone on, Monks' hyperreal paintings have become more abstract, with flesh hiding behind steamed surfaces, obscuring the body and facial expressions, and figures are more in performance with their poses than in works past.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 22, 2012
As part of the 2011 "Bring to Light" festival, Fanny Allie created the Glowing Homeless sculpture, and placed it on a bench in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Preview: Chrissy Angliker @ Knoerle & Baettig, Winterthur, Switzerland

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 08, 2012
Brooklyn-based, Zurich-born Chrissy Angliker is set to open a new series of drip paintings, Control and Chaos, at Knoerle & Baettig Gallery in Winterthur, Switzerland this Saturday, May 12. As Angliker says of the series, "The focus of this painting style lies in creating a balanced relationship between the controllable and uncontrollable. For every intentional mark, there follows a free-falling drip, challenging it. I am searching for a sense of grace in the transition between these two opposing elements."

The Rematch: Duke Riley recreating history in China

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 23, 2012
A history lesson from Brooklyn's Duke Riley: Thousands of years ago, the Jade Emperor decided to assign an animal’s name to every year, in order to simplify the calendar for the people of China. A swimming race amongst twelve animals across the mighty river was organized to determine the sequential order in which year they would appear. This would become the Shengxiao, the Chinese zodiac. And now, Duke is going to recreate this race.
