New Works by Alyssa Monks

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 16, 2012
This past summer, we were very impressed by the new series of paintings by Brooklyn-based Alyssa Monks. Today, we look at a few new works, as well as a few studies from Monks, works that are characterized by the appearence that the subjects are being captured in the fog of a shower, with a bit of hiding and protection for the models.

Paintings by Mernet Larson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Mernet Larson's paintings are filled with a diverse array of cues that suggest various past artists from De Chirico to Lissitzky. Her most recent three bodies of work (or "three chapters as the title of her show") focus on heads and bodies, places, and narratives.

The Photography of Sarah Ann Loreth

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Sarah Ann Loreth does not take photographs; she creates them from scenes she pulls from deep within her psyche. Sarah is a fine art photographer from New Hampshire, who specializes in self-portraiture and conceptual portraiture. In her work she tries to covey a quiet stillness of emotion with a connection to her natural surroundings.

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."
