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.

Drawing the Bodily Form with Michelle Furlong

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 01, 2012
Michelle Furlong's artworks revolve around the human form, using the mediums of drawing, painting, and sculpture to investigate the limits space in and around the body. Furlong's drawings wrap and fragment arms, heads, feet, shoulders, and everything else in contorted and high-tension positions that flatten some limbs while others emerge fully rendered in graphite.

Paintings by Michael Dotson

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
Michael Dotson's paintings are a myriad assortment of abstract planes in lurid hues, highly stylized and flattened representation, and hard edged abstract space. Each painting occupies a different degree of depth and flatness, presenting a maze of imagined and observed realms. Here are a selection of his more recent works.

The Works of Joram Roukes

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 25, 2012
We found ourselves this morning checking into what former Juxtapoz cover artist, Charlie Isoe, was up to, and we came acroos some mind-blowing paintings by Dutch artist, Joram Roukes. The oil paintings mix a bit of contemporary content with a mixture of pop-culture symbolism and stream of consciousness application. Roukes says of his work that they "refer to the moral dillemas one may find himself in, viewing todays western society."
