Blurry Night Paintings by Alexandra Pacula

Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 16, 2012
We are sure some people have had actual nights like this where the city lights become a bit of a blur. Or quite blurry. Or plain spinning. We recommend if you have a bit of a soft stomach, than some of the beautiful works by Alexandra Pacula might throw you in a bit of a tailspin. She calls it "visual intoxication."

Paintings by Falk Gernegross (NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Monday, February 13, 2012
Channeling the classic eras of Romantic, Renaissance, and almost with a touch of Rembrandt thrown in, painter Falk Gernegross creates both nudes and everyday scenes in a flat, colorful, realistic style. The artist's work is haunting, disturbing even, but hard to look away.

Recent Works by Kim Cogan

Juxtapoz // Sunday, February 12, 2012
We have always loved the oil on canvas paintings by Kim Cogan, capturing realistic urban enivironments and quiet city scenes both at night and during the day. Here is a look at some of Cogan's newest paintings...

Bright, Bizarre, Beautiful: Paintings by Laurie Hogin

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 07, 2012
We have been meaning to show the fine art works of Laurie Hogin on the site before, and we thought why not go for the bizarre and beautiful, albeit a bit creepy to start off the Tuesday. As Hogin notes, "Species are chosen for their allegorical associations in Western culture, but are depicted as degraded or mutant versions: they are the fluorescent colors of contemporary media landscapes."

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.

Alex Gross: Victorian Era to Sci-Fi

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 27, 2012
Alex Gross, who will be showing at Jonathan LeVine next month (and who provided Juxtapoz with one of the best protraits in recent memory for his feature last year), completed a series of transforming Victorian era cabinet cards into modern day science fiction super-heroes and pop icons.

Paintings by Garth Weiser

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 25, 2012
Garth Weiser is a New York-based painter who received his MFA from Columbia. His paintings evolve from sculptural conception, sometimes beginning with a three dimensional sketch that leads to thick impasto grids and patterns on the canvas that adopts a sculptural quality itself.

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.

Paintings by Harry Hill

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 29, 2011
Although Harry Hill is not known primarily as a painter, he does paint regularly. An avid television watcher, Hill compiles stories and images from popular media utilizing magazines like Hello! for reference images as well as newspaper articles of heartwarming stories. The painting titled Long Live Love romanticizes the story of a shipwrecked labrador that swam to shore in order to be reunited with his owners.
