Lisa Scrimgeour's Bloody Gold

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 02, 2014
Lisa Scrimgeour is an artist living and working in Scotland. Her work is searingly tactile, a cacophony of violent texture and illustrious materiality. Scrimgeour is predominantly interested in culture, prejudice with ambitions to challenge traditional concepts of portraiture and figuration with works that are almost devoid of recognisable facial characteristics. Her aim is to use her art to stimulate questions of beauty and ugliness, disfigurement and difference and thereby interrogate the viewer's responses to prejudice, stereotyping and perhaps even subliminal reactions.

New Work from Jules Julien

Illustration // Friday, May 30, 2014
Graphically bold, simply rendered and heavily silhouetted, the work of Jules Julien satisfies that part of us that longs for the deep intricacies of illustration but appreciates the minimal and easy to digest.
