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.

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.

In Erotica: The Work of Lou Ros

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 09, 2011
'At the beginning, because my work is mainly based from photos, it is a selection similar to that of a photographer, capturing a moment, an emotion, something… The transition to painting, transforms this thing again as I see it or how I feel it. I build each painting slowly in my head, quickly on the canvas, but with many short breaks to think about the result…'

Drawings by Michael Swaney

Juxtapoz // Saturday, November 05, 2011

Time Travel with William P. Immer

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 01, 2011
We are getting a kick out of these paintings by William P. Immer, where he takes classic portraits of famed people of nobility and political power, and adds a contemporary element or three to each piece. Benjamin Franklin, for instance, gets a Breathe-Right strip upon his nose. Funny, imaginative work.
