The Work of Laurence Demaison

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 01, 2013
French photographer Laurence Demaison sometimes combines black and white photos with her own drawing, generating a ghostly finished product. "Taking full advantage of shwoing what the camera sees (sometimes over long periods of exposure) compared to what the human eye cannont or does not see, she pre-visualizes each photograph up to a certain degree, and then lets chance and intuitive performance intervene."

Installation by Anya Sirota + AKOAKI in Amilly, France

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 28, 2013
Michigan-based design studio, Anya Sirota + AKOAKI created this great installation of two 30-feet large star sculptures in a defunct tannery in Amilly, France. As UR Design notes, "The project, titled Pop It Up, comes at a critical moment for the tannery complex. Come fall 2013, the site will be converted into a cultural art center. In its current state of coming-undone-ness, however, with its bared concrete structure and second-story wood flooring and windows removed, the surviving architecture offers exceptional opportunities for experimentation and interim engagement." Its Friday, we like sharing quotes.

Graffiti // Tuesday, June 04, 2013
One of our European contributors, Butterfly, recently heading out to the studio of graffiti artist Gris1 in Lyon, France to see what the artist have prepared for the rest of his 2013 calendar year.

We have covered Gris1 a ton on our site and in our Graffiti Department in recent years, as well as a bunch of French writers, and we were very appreciative that Gris let us into his space. 

Paintings on Photographs by Charlotte Caron

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 03, 2013
We are enjoying the paintings of French artist Charlotte Caron this morning. She took a very simple idea, with a nice effect, involving the humanization of animals, and animalizing humans. The artist says of the series, "This series of paintings, photographs, are trying to respond to a form of duality... ultimately creating an osmosis between the two mediums, between the animal and the portrait."
