Best of 2013: John Wesley "Objects and Paintings" (NSFW)

Erotica // Thursday, December 26, 2013
Originally published on July 10th, 2013: Even though this show closed last week at David Kordansky in Los Angeles, John Wesley's work, as always, looked fantastic. "Objects and Paintings includes paintings and sculptures from several periods in Wesley’s career; all of them point to the “eccentric precision,” as Dan Flavin described it in the show's catlogue, that has made him one of the indispensible American artists of the post-war period.

Update: Paintings by Dan Voinea

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 18, 2013
We love Dan Voinea's suspension of belief, his capturing of movement and timeless style. "Momentary rise of reason constitutes a deliberated exercise in sanity and the absurd in the realm of the surreal. By means of basic, sparse compositions and frugal coloring, the artworks depict every-day stereotypes in which the strange detail contaminates the apparent reality with the absurd." - Dan Voinea

Another Look: Paintings by Lu Cong

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 16, 2013
We came across some beautiful works by fine artist Lu Cong this morning, and although the majority of the work focues on the faces of the subject, this one piece of the floating women caught our attention the most. Cong was born in Shanghai in 1978, and he moved to the US when he was 11, and interestingly, graduated from the University of Iowa with degrees in Biology and Art in 2000.

Update: Paintings by Japan's Ai Shinohara

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 12, 2013
Nothing like a pinata girl or fishes that like to immerse themselves in your chestal cavity to get you through the week. That is what we are dealing with in the dreamy, surreal universe of Kagoshima, Japa's Ai Shinohara, works that show the uncomfortable relationship between humans and nature. Beautiful results ensue with a few new paintings from the artist, we're hoping for more!

The former Juxtapoz cover artists (ie... actual brothers) brought 30 new works in paintings, drawings, sculpture, with the the brothers noting, "We see these images as a reflection of ourselves but also of our neighbors, our friends, and families.

The Watercolors of Patrick Krzyzanowski

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 10, 2013
For anybody who is sitting at their desk, needing a little humor, nostalgia, and glam wrestling, then the watercolor works of Patrick Krzyzanowski will definitely put you in a good mood. "Professional wrestling is multi-faceted and complex..."

The Works of Andre Petterson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Vancover based artist Andre Petterson attempts to capture the essence of a split-second in time. His current photography-based work explores various themes of lighting to create elements of mystery. Rembrandt and the Dutch masters’ use of light have strongly influenced Petterson; important elements are highlighted and the mind must fill in the rest.
