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."

The Works of Leah Yerpe

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 14, 2012
We caught the work of Brooklyn-based Leah Yerpe on Booooooom yesterday, and then we spent a good amount of time exploring all the works she had on her site. Charcoal drawings, big and small, paintings too, Yerpe captures a fleeting, dreamlike experience of floating and flying, powerful in its simplicity.

The Works & Film of Julia Pott

Juxtapoz // Sunday, November 11, 2012
Julia Pott is an illustrator from Brooklyn, NY who "employs awkward animated characters to act out her inner confusions." Something about her layered patterning and lumpy figures makes for a really compelling effect, and because it's the weekend, we threw in a bizarre little short film of hers too. Enjoy!

Judith Supine x Jesse Hazelip

Street Art // Saturday, October 27, 2012
Earlier this week, we posted news of Judith Supine’s work popping up around the streets of Brooklyn, something we hadn’t seen in some time.  Now, a number of Supine’s wheatpastes with the illustration work of Jesse Hazelip have found their way outside as well. The additional layering of cholo style tattoos on Supine’s characters makes for a completely different result, plenty more menacing! If you want to see them in person, we suggest walking through the streets of Williamsburg and look for the fluorescent green, not hard to miss.

Preview: Dennis McNett's "HALLO-WOLFBAT" @ House of Vans, Brooklyn

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
As we noted on the site last week, ee just had our pre-Halloween costume party with Alex Pardee this past weekend, but we think if you happen to be in Brooklyn on October 31, Dennis McNett's "HALLO-WOLFBAT" installation/performance/exhibition/party would be something you should definitely spend time at. Coming soon to the House of Vans... there will be a 22' Viking ship if you need more reasons to go.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Last Friday we pass by The Cotton Candy Machine Gallery in Brooklyn to take a close look of The Candy Escape, the new exhibition by two very talented artist: Camilla d’Errico and Brandi Milne. Camilla’s drawings are full with emotion, containing an innocent and passionate story to tell. Brandi's work is inspired by classic cartoons and an abundance of nostalgic child playthings.

New Works by Alyssa Monks

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 16, 2012
This past summer, we were very impressed by the new series of paintings by Brooklyn-based Alyssa Monks. Today, we look at a few new works, as well as a few studies from Monks, works that are characterized by the appearence that the subjects are being captured in the fog of a shower, with a bit of hiding and protection for the models.

Daniel Kukla: The Edge Effect

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 11, 2012
Last spring, Brooklyn-based photographer, Daniel Kukla, took refuge for a month in a cabin in the Joshua Tree National Park as part of an artist’s residency by the United States National Park Service. From sun up to sun down, Kukla roamed the desert with a mirror, easel, and camera. He photographed the propped mirror to catch the opposing elements within the environment, creating abnormal yet striking imagery as a result.
