Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
These images, taken from scrolls produced during the Japanese Edo period (1603-1868), depict he-gassen or "farting competitions." Yes, that's right, farting. According to the website Naruhodo, "Similar drawings were used to ridicule westerners towards the end of the Edo period, with images depicting the westerners blown away by Japanese farts."

Julia Randall: Lures, Decoys, Tongues, and Bubble Gum

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 10, 2014
Julia Randall is in love with drawing, and uses her seductive technique to craft images that subtly challenge assumptions about corporeality, desire, and the natural world. Intersecting sensibilities activate her work; images are simultaneously erotic and humorous, beautiful and repulsive. Although she clearly operates in the realm of fantasy, Randall uses observation-based drawing and hyperrealistic technique to create images that are surreal and suggestive.

Drawings by Louise Despont

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 10, 2014
Louise Despont's intensely intricate graphite illustrations are created on delicate sheets of antique ledger paper, similar to those that turn-of-the-century organizations used for their accounting. Despont takes these mundane parchments and draws mysterious, graphite designs onto them, similar to renderings of architectural plans or portraits of deities, with an Art Deco aesthetic. The overall muted pattern works by this Brooklyn based artist are meticulously meditative and alluring.

Furniture Imitates Art

Furniture imitates art! Jinil Park, a South Korean designer, has created steel wire furniture that look like rough line sketches. "The key point of my work is the moments where the line is distorted," said Jinil Park. "They express the designer’s feeling, status, and emotion."
