Paintings by Carl Ostendarp

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 12, 2012
Carl Ostendarp's paintings were once described by art critic Jerry Saltz as a hypothetical collaborative art production by Dr. Seuss's Cat in the Hat, Jules Olitski, and Roy LIchtenstein, and we couldn't agree more. These playful paintings evoke a range of visual cues from cartoons to high art minimalism...

New Works by Korea's Spunky Zoe

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 09, 2012
We think we have expressed this sentiment on the site before, but we are huge fans of the work of Korean artist, Spunky Zoe. Her ballpoint and acrylic works just have this original vision to them, not to mention that they are created on large format paper. Fascinating work as always.

Another Look at Suzannah Sinclair

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 08, 2012
Artist Suzannah Sinclair's dreamy and seductive work is largely inspired by the vintage pornography of the 60's and 70's, a time when earthy sensuality and voluptuous figures reigned supreme. By using pale washes of watercolor to allow the soft grain of her birch wood canvases to come through, Sinclair perfectly merges the visceral qualities of her medium with the nostalgic essence of her erotically-charged subject matter.

Paintings by Simon Birch

Juxtapoz // Sunday, October 07, 2012
After a long talk with Conor Harrington recently, we have become very fascinated with the idea of motion in paintings. When we came across the work of Hong Kong-based Simon Birch recently, we loved the way the artist depicted motion, both in his subjects and also with the surreal elements to his paintings.

Erotic Works by Aaron Nagel

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 03, 2012
Its difficult not to fall in absolute adoration when it comes to the paintings of San Francisco based Aaron Nagel. His realistic portraiture is both sinful and innocent, hinting at religious iconography, while playing with erotic seduction, they are everything I hope to see in gorgeous provocative realism.

The Works of Nicola Samori

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 01, 2012
The paintings of Italian artist, Nicola Samori, are full of sensuous energy. The thirty-five year old’s style is derived from the classical paintings of early renaissance masters. With the highest degree of precession, his figures emerge from the darkness of pictorial space into the light with dramatic realism.

More Works by Joram Roukes

Juxtapoz // Saturday, September 22, 2012
We have been into this work all year. "Joram Roukes' large scaled oil paintings refer to the moral dillemas one may find himself in, viewing today's Western society. Through experience by participation, Roukes reflects not necessarily an opinion on society's flaws in his work, but rather observes and reports on typical western phenomena, leaving judgement up to the viewer, who thereby, establish their own position in these matters."

Oil Painting on Pennies by Jacqueline Lou Skaggs

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 19, 2012
Well, you don't see this everyday. Artist Jacqueline Lou Skaggs has taken discarded pennies (well, every penny gets discarded, doesn't it?) and painted the smallest of portraits, landscapes, and figurative paintings on the smallest of surfaces. Can't imagine you need a lot of oils for this.

Paintings by Kim Westfall

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 17, 2012
Paintings can be great when they consist of impeccable renderings that transcend the medium, but at other times, the best paintings are those that emphasize the materiality of the medium and the immediacy of each mark made on the canvas. Kim Westfall's paintings fall under the latter category.

The Works of Andrew Salgado

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 14, 2012
From New York to Korea, Vancouver based artist Andrew Salgado has been able to take the fine art world on one brush stroke at a time. His work explores the correlation between the concept of masculinity and the properties of the medium; generally based in paint, at times his practice incorporates video, text, sculpture, performance, and paper-based work.
