Landon Metz' recent paintings from the last year incorporate washy minimalist fields of color, at times apparently brushy, and at others more ordered resembling continents upon a map or other ambiguous forms that border on the recognizable but slip away into the abstraction of the canvas. WIth a consistent white background across the entire body of work, Metz plays with varying gradients, degrees of transparency and opacity, and compositional arrangements.

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 14, 2012
Jeffrey Gibson's work is undeniably upbeat and vibrant in its use of color and form, yet there is more going on than just these pleasing minimalist color combinations, which in themselves are captivating.

A former student of a Jux favorite, Neo Rauch, the works almost appear to be stills from a claymation gone horribly awesome, but closer attention finds beautiful works.

I am painting the forms in such a way to produce as much of a visceral experience as possible."

Paintings by Tom Burckhardt

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 12, 2012
Tom Burckhardt's paintings on cast plastic supports occupy a delicate place in contemporary painting that is self-aware of the discourse surrounding the long-established medium, with many subtle touches to the surfaces reflecting a sense absurdity which accompanies imagery that balances between abstract and representational.
