Benjamin Sack's incredible cityscapes are drawn with extraordinarly complex detail and filled with myriads of miniature and sometimes recognizable buildings.

Ink Drawings by Eugene Andolsek

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 05, 2015

"The release was cathartic and pretty soon he was getting lost in the intricacies of his work and the geometric worlds he created, drawing and coloring for hours on end in a trance." Andolsek passed away in 2008.

David Haines "actively examines his position as an artist who makes pictorial and textual narratives in the wake of abstraction, conceptual art and photography.

The immersive works require 'slow viewing', inhabiting the often-overlooked space between looking and interpretation."

Drawings by Juul Kraijer

Illustration // Wednesday, April 15, 2015
Juul Kraijer's subject is the same naked female figure she has drawn repeatedly for more than a decade, whose features she has universalized and pared down (removing the eyebrows, for instance) so that she becomes almost an archetype, an 'everywoman' or, as the artist describes her, an 'emblematic embodiment of states of mind'...
