Monochromatic Works by Yasuyo Fujibe

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
In this series of oil paintings by Japanese artist Yasuyo Fujibe, flesh becomes ephemeral as the face fades into bone-white oblivion. Understated but effective. Fujibe is a graduate of the Kyoto University of Art and Design.

The Works of Anita Kunz

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 20, 2012
Here is a series of paintings by Canadian artist Anita Kunz about the gorgeous brutality of nature. Take a look at this series to see women in the nude battling it out with wild beasts and creatures. This perfectly titled set, "Flesh & Blood", allows you to acknowledge both the beauty of the female figure and the gore of the brutal attacks.

Gouache Paintings by Eric Shaw

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 17, 2012
Eric Shaw's colorful gouache paintings depict bold, graphic and pattern-laden spaces that are abstracted and dizzying with very opaque and hard edged forms intertwining across the image.

Photography of Jennifer B. Hudson

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 15, 2012
"This is new, experimental work exploring ideas of memory and memory loss. This work begun with larger scale sculptural installations using organic material to create 'armor' or head adornments for the human subjects. The final works are digital photographs, 10 x 10 inch archival pigment ink prints."

Robert Longo's Perfect Gods

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 14, 2012
Discovery Channel kicked off this past Sunday night celebrating the start of their 25th year of Shark Week. I was curious how else sharks may have influenced culture beyond Jaws, eating Mythbusters, and of course leaping through the air in super slow motion. I was fortunate enough to come across Robert Longo, an amazing artist focusing on hyperrealism at massive scale.

The Paintings of Italy's Lorella Paleni

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 14, 2012
Just what we needed this morning, some beautiful, stream of consciousness, dreamy paintings to get us started. We came across the work of Italy's Lorella Paleni a few weeks, and were reminded again this morning, and from what we see of the recent Colombia student, we like where the work is headed. 

Preview: Nicola Verlato "Zero Gravity" @ Merry Karnowsky, LA

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 09, 2012
We are bad at keeping secrets, so let's just say that we have something cooking in the magazine with Nicola Verlato. And in the meantime, we have this preview, and think you should check out, Verlato's new solo show, Zero Gravity, opening at Los Angeles' Merry Karnowsky Gallery this Saturday, August 11.

New works by Sweden's Markus Åkesson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 07, 2012
We saw these new works by Swedish fine artist, Markus Akesson, yesterday, and they stayed in the back of our mind's all night, so we figured that must be a sign. The new paintings, most of them shown here, are set to be on display at the VIDA Museum in Borgholm, Sweden, from August 18 to September 30, 2012. The works are all oil on linen.

Wrapped in Plastic: Paintings by Robin Eley

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 04, 2012
"My paintings are essays of observation, born from a relentless examination of my mileu. Rather than shout, my paintings speak softly. Their messages, both personal and profound, audible only to those who make the effort to listen. By documenting time, I attempt to slow its quickening pace; such that for the briefest of moments there is just the viewer, my painting and the space between."

The Works of Amanda Elizabeth Joseph

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 01, 2012
We are not quite sure how to feel here, but we know we feel a little bit uncomfortable. Maybe it is the discolored skin? The pimples? The blood? The black eyes? The jewels? The smiling? The sadness? Probably the sores? Whatever it is, all we know is that there is something dark here, but we can't take our eyes off of the works of Amanda Elizabeth Joseph.
