The Works of Valentin van der Meulen

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 08, 2013
The work of French artist Valentin van der Meulen has recently caught our eye. His blurred and torn paintings are full of emotion and tension that transport the viewer to a dark place. Recently, Meulen did a collaboration with fellow French artist David Mesguich. The collaborative piece, seen in the gallery, features a 3-headed geometric sculpture, reveals a new dimension to Meulen's already impresssive work.

Oil Paintings by Sascha Braunig

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 04, 2013
SASCHA BRAUNIG combines vibrant color and an hypnotic style in works that reflect upon illusion and the surface of the image. In dream-like scenes where repetition and patterning are foregrounded, Braunig's female subjects emit an extrasensory glow. Flaring with reflected color, they are iridescent beings whose very skin seems to be a source of psychic power. —Foxy Production

The Works of Chad Wys

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 31, 2012
Illinois native Chad Wys' has continued his deconstructive assault on the art world. Using a variety of mixed media elements, Wy's has focused on creating a series of ready made objects that are based on objectivity and ownership. In doing so, he often explores and exploits the idea of object-hood: how we decorate our lives with arbitrary, as well as meaningful, things...

Geoffrey Chadsey: Men

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 31, 2012
“Resolutely unglamorous, Chadsey's young men, no hunks, preen and pose, sometimes grotesquely transformed by superimpositions that seem to be materialized projections of their fantasies…. These drawings in water-soluble colored pencil on mylar are skillfully delineated, visually powerful, and, even these days, disturbing and provocative.” As stated by DeWitt Chang of the Huffington Post

Melissa Cooke

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 20, 2012
Melissa Cooke's drawings are made by dusting thin layers of graphite onto paper with a dry brush. The softness of the graphite provides a smooth surface that can be augmented by erasing in details and textures. No pencils are used in the work, allowing the surface to glow without the shine of heavy pencil marks. Illusion dissolves into brush work and the honesty of the material...

Paintings by Stephen Hayes

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 20, 2012
Stephen Hayes landscape paintings are rooted in the practice of painters like Monet, van Gogh, and even Bonnard, but that is not to say they are outdated. They utilize a garish juxtaposition of hues that brings these traditional modes of representing a green, pastoral scene into a more contemporary dialogue. Brush strokes begin as representation, and then wiggle their way onto the flatness of the surface, with drips at times further emphasizing this flatness of the painting...

Paintings by Rui Pedro Jorge

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 18, 2012
You know when you look at David Hockney's A Bigger Splash and you get that pure joy of flat color framed into a crisp and sharpened representational picture? While maybe not entirely similar in style, it seems that Rui Pedro Jorge has taken his own flattened approach to a different type of subject. Instead of the clean lines of mid-century Los Angeles, we see fragments of brightly colored wood, real palm trees (not the plastic, Southern California kind), and detritus of an area that does not thrive from the economic success that Beverly Hills might revel in.
