The Spilling, Broken Ceramics of Livia Marin

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 29, 2013
"My artistic practice has been characterized by large-scale installations and the appropriation of mass-produced and consumer objects. I employ techniques and strategies that are characteristic of Sculpture, Installation and Process Art. I employ everyday objects to enquire into the nature of how we relate to material objects in an era dominated by mass-production, standardization and global circulation..."

The Demented, Incredible Ceramic Works of Clayton Bailey

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 18, 2013
Sometimes someone so awesome lives in our backyard and we didn't even know it. For the past few years, we have been seeing the demented, surreal, incredible ceramic and sculpture work of Crockett, California-based artist Clayton Bailey floating around Tumblrs and blogs, but our colleague walked in our office the other day with a whole explanation of how amazing this man really is. Active in the art community since the 1960s, and a teacher in Wisconsin and Northern California throughout the '60s as well, Clayton just celebrated a 50 year retrospective at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento in 2011.

Alaina Varrone's Embroidered Erotica

Erotica // Saturday, June 08, 2013
Alaina Varrone is arguably the ballsiest embroidery artist out there. She embroiders striking scenes and images that are often explicit in nature, creating a wonderfully weird contrast between a traditionally inoffensive medium and its content. Born in New Haven, Connecticut "to a family of weirdos and storytellers," Varrone says she "uses this natural creativity to tell her own stories in thread." Varrone attended MICA as a fiber arts student and is currently working on a series based on the various gang girls of mythology.

Embroidery With Adult Themes by Ana Teresa Barboza

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 29, 2013
We have had an affinity for embroidery art over the years, with our Handmade Art book heavy on the medium. When we came across Ana Teresa Barboza's mixed media, embroidery art this past evening, we loved the combination of mediums made for an almost 3D experience. We like to say adult-themed, because you rarely see a little loving between the sheets down with a needle and thread, threading the needle, or however you want to say it.

Wies Preijde's Woven Installations

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 07, 2013
Wies Preijde's woven thread screens operate on several levels, all of which are visually and conceptually stimulating. Simple but harmonious color combinations exist in the abstracted, patterned spaces, resulting in a flattened image that still expands three dimensionally.

The Embroidery of Jose Ignacio Romussi Murphy

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 07, 2012
Embroidery on photos isn’t anything new, but Jose Ignacio Romussi Murphy has made it looking absolutely terrific. Taking vintage photos he’s collected over the years, the young artist intricately weaves a palette of sonorous colors.

Charlotte Drury @ Rock Paper Scissors, Oakland

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 26, 2012
Sticks and Stones, Feral Bones is a showcase of new works from Charlotte Drury at Rock Paper Scissors in Oakland, encompassing the ideas of objects and objectivity. The works are an investigation of the ways in which we attach feelings, associations, and memories to objects; exploring our identities through our histories, visually and internally.

Paperstuff by Bartek Elsner

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 22, 2012
Make gigantic things from paper, and call the series "Paperstuff." Simple enough. Berlin-based art director Bartek Elsner created the series Paperstuff because he seems to be able to make anything with paper, from boomboxes, to fire places, to televisions, to CCTV cameras, to VCRs.
