*Every Sunday, Juxtapoz.com will highlight an artist that we feel is currently on the cusp of a new level of critical and technical success. The artist we feature will not necessarily be unknown, nor will they be of a pre-established museum career. But they will be artists who have showcased progress in a new body of work that deserves continual examination. We will mostly look at the work itself and let the art speak. Today, we feature California-bred, Stockholm-based artist, Evah Fan.

"When I happened upon Gregory Bartning’s photography studio during San Francisco’s “Open Studios” event in the Lower Haight, my jaw literally dropped," writes Jasmine June Cabanaw. "Cliche, I know, but that was my physical response when I saw his stunning dance photography displayed on the studio walls. A dancer myself, I was baffled at how geometrically perfect the images were." Interview after the jump . . .
