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.

Update: Paintings by Alex Roulette

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 05, 2013
Alex Roulette's paintings are both realistic yet subtly surreal. A strangely dreamlike landscape is occupied by young boys, as if recalling some idealized, American summer vacation. Yet the houses seem over simplified and out of place, as if reduced in detail and pasted on to the rolling meadows that span the scene. This morning we are taking a look through his more recent work!

Update: The Paintings of Agostino Arrivabene

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 03, 2013
At first we thought this was work done on top of found art, but once we realized this was the brand new series of Italian painter, Agostino Arrivabene, we liked the work even more. Surreal, fantastical constructions of oil on wood, Arrivabene's works remind us of dark tarot cards. Update: This morning we take a look back through some more of Agostino's work including his wonderful sketchbooks and drawings!
