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.
