Drawings by Joe Biel

Illustration // Tuesday, October 28, 2014
This morning we take a look at the drawings of Los Angeles-based artist Joe Biel. His most recent work has increased both in scale and complexity, addressing a theme of poetic collision between beauty and the (sometimes cruel) absurdity of the contemporary world.

Humberto Casas Junca's School Desk Drawings

Artist Humberto Casas Junca draws on classic school desks, combining his detailed drawings of violent events in Colombia with Norwegian black metal logos. Maybe if our drawings were this good when we doodled and carved our desks in school we wouldn't have spent so many recesses in time out....but maybe not.

Drawings by Aubrey Learner

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 09, 2014
Aubrey Learner’s intricate watercolor, graphite and ink drawings are metaphors of desire and disgust: the disparate longings for both purity and sexual prowess, and the concurrent disgust at perversion and decay. Juxtaposing contemporary fascinations with sexuality against the various vulgarities associated with reproduction, she explores the imposition of societal mores...

An Update with Jon Fox

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 09, 2014
Today we check in with UK artist Jon Fox, who was featured in our New Contemporary book last year. Fox will be taking part in group show we are excited about, "Égrégore", at Yves Laroche Gallery in Montreal, Canada later this fall. His work often addresses the conflict of emotion: 'heart against head.' Many of his characters occupy a world of tension and turmoil battling with their own significance while the looming presence of a larger restless energy is at work around them.
