In LA: Lari Pittman "From A Late Western Impaerium" @ Regen Projects

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 12, 2013
Some shows need to be seen in person, in a big spacious gallery, where gigantic canvases can overwhelm you in their peaceful positioning. And even though we just used a bunch of words that mean there are big paintings hanging at Regen Projects this month in Lari Pittman's "From A Late Western Impaerium," there are also highly detailed drawings and paintings that also suck you into their mysterious language and context. Here are some photos from the opening this past weekend... 

Mary Iverson "Sunk" @ Davidson Galleries, Seattle

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 07, 2013
We have made no secret that we really enjoy the works of Mary Iverson, both for its environmental questions and overall aesthetic, and enjoyed traveling to Singapore with her earlier this year and participating in a lecture with her. Now, the Seattle-based artist will open up Sunk, a new body of work at Davidson Galleries in her hometown, a series that challenges both globalization and its consequences. As she explains, "the capitalist system wagers the needs of a growing population against the stress the environment can bear. My work raises questions about the ultimate destination for all of this growth."

David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition @ de Young, San Francisco

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 23, 2013
The entire experience of having David Hockney open a massive exhibition, A Bigger Exhibition, if you will, in San Francisco is that you learn just how relentless and consistent the famed British artist's work ethic really is. He is non-stop, constantly learning new tricks, creating more immersive works, challenging pre-conceived notions of landspace and portrait painting, whether through iPad, or just old-fashioned perspective paintings. Here is our article from the November 2013 print issue about A Bigger Exhibition... 

Incredible Acrylic Paintings by Korea's Kim Hyo-Suk

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 18, 2013
Sometimes you see a series of paintings and just get stuck in a moment of awe. Korean artist, Kim Hyo-Suk, created this incredible series of acrylic paintings, My Floating City, with each painting sizing at around 6-feet x 7-feet. 

Julie Heffernan "Sky Is Falling" @ P.P.O.W. Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 16, 2013
P.P.O.W is pleased to announce Sky is Falling, our seventh solo exhibition of work by Julie Heffernan (featured in Juxtapoz, December 2012). Heffernan’s new paintings explore various levels of societal chaos, environmental catastrophes and humankind’s role as nature’s keeper. The figures are heroically determined to gather and collect elements of a world that is falling apart leaving only time to answer if, and when, the bag will drop.

Update: The Wonderfully Bizarre Paintings of Christian Rex van Minnen

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 16, 2013
One of our favorite artists that we learned about last year was Rhode Island-born, Christian Rex van Minnen. The paintings he had at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica were absolute standouts, a new, bizarre twist on pop-surrealism and classical painting that just captured our attention. We just saw some of his newer works, and wanted to show them today.

Jenny Morgan "How To Find A Ghost" @ Driscoll Babcock, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 14, 2013
DRISCOLL BABCOCK GALLERIES presents Jenny Morgan: How To Find A Ghost, Morgan’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. In this new body of work, Morgan pushes her transcendent figurative paintings to a larger scale, the pure magnitude of which amplifies the psychological intimacy of her work. Despite the immediacy of her figures, Morgan’s deep insights into her subjects emerge slowly over time; their blurred features, sanded outlines, and unique coloration push her portraits toward a revelatory abstraction.

Juxtapoz Presents: Scott Greenwalt

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 26, 2013
Earlier this year, we published a new book in our ongoing series, New Contemporary, that focuses on painters that both define and help evolve our coverage of painting through our 20 years of publishing. One of the artists that we were most proud to showcase was Scott Greenwalt, an Oakland, California based artist that combines both the natural and the metaphysical, creating a new brand of psychedelic arts with originality and amazing painting chops. We stopped by his studio to get a better glimpse at his work ethic, his plants, and his neighbors. 

Jonas Wood: New Works @ Anton Kern Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 26, 2013
I confess, I'm a huge fan of Jonas Wood's paintings. I was first attracted to his life-sized reporductions of obscure baseball cards, but became even more fascinated by his unique and original take on still-lifes, portraits, and paintings of what appears to be average suburban living rooms. Simply put, Wood does the everyday in a very beautiful way. This month, Wood opened his fourth solo show at Anton Kern Gallery in NYC, featuring portraits of friends, tennis, news rooms, pets, and rooms. 

New Paintings by Rene Almanza

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 05, 2013
Monterrey, Mexico based fine artist and former Juxtapoz featured artist Rene Almanza just sent us a series of beautiful new paintings he has been working on. The artist has moved from him more futurist style to a more classical, but still contemporary, portrait style.
