Paintings by Chloe Early

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 22, 2012
We haven't checked in with one of our favorite painters, Chloe Early, in almost a year, and we loved the series of paintings she had at Joshua Liner Gallery last Fall. Taking a surreal approach, with figurative elements interchanged with color abstractions and dreamlike visions, Early's paintings take you on a stream of consciousness journey. 

Paintings by Deenesh Ghyczy

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 11, 2012
"Deenesh Ghyczy leads us into a world where habitual principals of thought and argument become meaningless. His figures stand beyond the cause-and-effect of everyday life; some are shown levitating, others in a state of complete inwardness. Streams of consciousness appear to be channeled and frozen in the recurrent motif of fragmented, disintegrating figures..."

Paintings by Fulvio di Piazza

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 08, 2012
Back in 2010, when we first saw the work of Palmero, Italy based fine artist, Fulvio di Piazza, we knew there was something special going on. Now, di Piazza has a new solo show back at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, full of oil on canvas surreal mindwarps, based on the economic writings of Jeremy Rifkin, and his 1980 book, Entropy.

The Paintings of Korea's Kwon Kyung-yup

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 08, 2012
We love the flat, white, realistic paintings of Korean-painter, Kwon Kyung-yup. Each female painted has an isolated, frozen glance, which makes them to appear to almost be facades in a dream. The detail in which the painter uses the color white is quite stunning. 

The Work of Marc Trujillo

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 04, 2012
Nothing says Americana and 4th of July like a good painting of a KFC and a stereotypical mall scene. Marc Trujillo's paintings are exactly what we wanted to find this morning; well-rendered scenes of banal "anywhere America"; the fast food stops, the malls, the parking lots that are truly the fascinating and all-encompassing shared experiences that we as Americans can relate to. Brilliant work.

"Between the Lines": Ian Davenport @ Art Plural Gallery, Singapore

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 04, 2012
Ian Davenport's "Puddle Paintings" currently on view at Art Plural Gallery engage in controlled experiments. Balancing between chance and intent, the works are a direct reflection upon the materiality of the paint and the process of creating the finished panels.

The Paintings of Francesca Bifulco

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 30, 2012
We love being blown away on a Saturday morning, and the paintings of Rome, Italy and USA-based fine artist Francesca Bilfuco are full of incredible skill and unique styles, we just can't help but want to get on a plane and fly to her show in Tokyo this August. 

The Work of Michael Kagan

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
New York City-based Michael Kagan makes us remember why we love space travel in the first place; it documents well, even if it is oil on linen pieces based on photographs. He has a whole wonderful series of large scale paintings of NASA space missions, all created with both figurative and abstract flourishes.

Paintings for a Blind Man: The Work of Roy Nachum

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 26, 2012
This past week, as we would walk back to our hotel on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, we were struck by a billboard that featured a gorilla roar juxtaposed (hey-o) with a little girl screaming. It was remarkably striking, and one of the reasons we loved it was that we knew it was the work of fine artist, Roy Nachum, who just wrapped up a solo show in NYC at Joseph Nahmad. What makes it even more remarkable is that the work is layered with Braille.

New Paintings by MARGARITA GEORGIADIS

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 26, 2012
We just ran into a new body of work from Margarita Georgiadis, who just showed at Edwina Corlette Gallery in Brisbane, Australia this past May. A mixture of abstract flashes mixed with figurative elements of flashing moments caught on canvas, Georgiadis' work is both haunting and refreshing, a nice collection of oil on canvas works that are both psychological and physical.
