Paintings by Ahmed Alsoudani

Juxtapoz // Saturday, November 26, 2011
Ahmed Alsoudani's paintings are immersed in the surreal, compiling fractured images from fleshy masses with inorganic forms, yielding a psychologically unsettling image that borders on comparison with Picasso's Guernica as a response to the "psychological repercussions" of warfare.

Looking Back: Stuart Davis

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 25, 2011
Every now and then, we like to highlight one of the greats that inspires some of our favorite contemporary artists. When recently looking at Jonas Wood's paintings, we revisited Stuart Davis' work (Davis being a significant influence on Wood's stylistic approach).

Looking Back: Text Paintings by John Baldessari

Juxtapoz // Sunday, November 20, 2011
These text paintings from famous California artist John Baldessari date back to the 1960s. Each painting packs a witty message about the state of contemporary painting and the dilemmas, standards, and requirements the art world places upon the traditional art form.

Paintings by Ky Anderson

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 18, 2011
Ky Anderson paints intuitively, creating images and forms through the process of the painting, with meaning often developing after the picture has been completed and as the abstractions reach a decisive balance.

The Paintings of JL Robbins

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 15, 2011
Sometimes, all you need are acrylic and pastel paintings on wood to get your day started. Los Angeles-based JL Robbins evolving series is a mix of both mystical, magical realism and erotica. We guess his previous career as a lab technician fabricating prosthetics and orthotics has paid off.

Paintings by John McAllister

Juxtapoz // Sunday, November 13, 2011
John McAllister's recent paintings have an apparent interest in vibrant color and flatness that stylistically alludes to painters like Matisse. The stylization of the images and subject matter have a photographic feel, especially when considering photography as documentation.

Paintings by Francesca DiMattio

Juxtapoz // Saturday, November 12, 2011
Francesca DiMattio's paintings deconstruct interiors and architectural forms just to reconstruct them in a overwhelming burst of chaos that recedes dizzyingly into the canvas, causing confusion and interest as forms slightly reveal themselves while others refuse to be identified.

Circles by Deborah Boardman

Juxtapoz // Saturday, November 12, 2011
Deborah Boardman is an artist who is drawn to handmade materiality of painting. Here we show you some of her oil on paper circles from 2010.

Paintings by Jenny G

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 11, 2011
Jenny G is a Vancouver based artist. She makes these very colorful, playful paintings that nod to some darker issues. In a recent installation, she scrawled across one of the walls, "Our budget will work if we sleep through the entire weekend without eating anything." Maybe we should try that.

Paintings by Kurt Lightner

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 09, 2011
Kurt Lightner creates these acrylic on panel paintings that emphasize the paint and color while balancing between spatial illusion and painterly abstraction. Some structures reveal themselves in the form of bold colored brush strokes while others seem to blend as pure mark-making decisions of the artist.
