Paintings by Lorella Paleni

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 01, 2014
A dreamy set of paintings from Italian artist, Lorella Paleni. A past student at both SVA and Columbia, Paleni mixes contemporary psychedelia with traditional painting that results in works that are both abstract and figurative, almost recreating the double exposure trend we have been noticing recently, but with a paintbrush. 

The Works of Razvan Boar

Julie Mehretu's large-scale, mixed media paintings create a dizzying field of layered landscapes to construct colorful and complex abstractions and lines. Drawing from historical and fictional references to architecture, urban planning, societal structures of power, and personal narrative,

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Alex Katz "45 YEARS OF PORTRAITS. 1969-2014" @ Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Paris

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 05, 2014
We know, we know, Alex Katz may be just a tad too fine art establishment for our daily feed on the site, but I have always found his work to be remarkable every time I see it at one of the large art fairs we visit each year. We are sure to see some of this paintings at the Armory Show this week, but if you happen to be in Paris, Katz has what appears to be a wonderful exhibition, "45 Years of Portraits, 1969—2014," at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac up through July 2014. Go check it.

Sarah Cain "Burning Bush" @ Galerie Lelong, NYC

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 21, 2014
Juxtapoz was very fortunate to get to spend time with Sarah Cain and run a print feature of her work in the December 2011 issue, and we have been following her ascent into the fine art word for years. Having showed at institutions like SFMOMA and the Orange County Museum of Art, Cain's new work at Galerie Lelong is some of our favorite to date. Abstraction fixed into structured installation preparation... a really stunning show we can't wait to see in person.
