Artist to Watch: Evah Fan

Juxtapoz // Sunday, January 09, 2011
*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.

Never Heard Of Yah: Grady Gordon Monotype Process

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 05, 2011
Grady Gordon creates unique monotype prints inspired by Native American Katchina dolls and Japanese Yokai.  I recently stopped by his Oakland based studio to investigate his work chamber and more importantly, witness his process.  The following photos are a play by play of Grady at work.

Back Talk—Paul Barnes

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 05, 2011
Let's hear from Paul Barnes, who will be showing in the Project Room at Thinkspace starting this Saturday, January 8th: "I guess my closeness to nature and the slight isolation of growing up in the rural north of Scotland, along with my fascination of its ancient traditions rich in folklore and legend no doubt forms the basis of my work, no matter how much I try to escape it. It’s this inspiration, from a very early age, that fuels a big part of my imagination today." More after the jump . . .

A Fusion of Photography and Movement—Interview with Gregory Bartning

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 03, 2011
"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 . . .

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 27, 2010
We appreciate an artist who takes the Back Talk and just goes for it. Adam Caldwell goes for it.
