Wallflower: Paintings by Cecilia Paredes

Juxtapoz // Saturday, February 04, 2012
We know that Chinese artist Liu Bolin gets a lot of recognition for his blending into public objects by painting himself series, but we would like to say that Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes' work of painting herself into various flowering wallpaper designs is quite impressive. At times, you can almost lose her in the backdrops she chooses.

Paintings by Kevin Peterson

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 23, 2012
Sometimes we wonder when we see work like Houston-based Kevin Peterson, with his ability to recreate photorealistic quality paintings with graffiti included, what sort of graff artist he would be? Obviously, we can only assuem he would have some success given these painitings.

Paintings by Matthias Weischer

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 17, 2012
Matthias Weisher is a German painter whose interiors create a disorienting balance between illusionistic space and chaos. The flattened rectangles of walls and patterned carpets are reminiscent of Hockney's interiors that exhibit a heightened illusionistic tension between flatness and depth, but Weisher's works delve into a world that is even more strange and more confusing.

Realist Paintings by Michael Peck

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 27, 2011
You can get lost in a great realist painting, and Michael Peck's new series of oil on line works, exhibited recently at Metro Gallery in Armadale, Australia, are some of the best we have seen this year. Taking the subject of World War II and adding a contemporary feel and children to the scenes, Peck's work is based on isolation and displacement.
