Jonathan Levine Gallery invited us to the opening reception of Machine Sabbath, the new series of paintings, mix media collages and sculptures by Australian artist Ashley Wood. The female form is the center of the stories Machine Sabbath, were with an expressionist approach, Ashley brings to life sensual and contrasted characters that show what they truly are, in between partly obscure and enigmatic places...

We had the pleasure of attending the opening reception of Jeremy Geddes, at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. Exhale is the name of a series of 17 hyperreal paintings that capture surreal instants, created with incredibly accurate detail and laborious work. His characters seem to appear in the precise juncture of a fragmented moment and space “...generating a tension between man-made environments in flux and the fragility of living bodies.”

We often think Ashley Wood needs to get as much attention as any working artist today, but we know that there is a cult-following of Wood-heads all around the world. Features in our Pushead issue in November 2011, the Australia-based Wood is set to open a new body of work, Machine Sabbath, at Jonathan LeVine Gallery on Saturday, October 20. It will be his first solo show in the United States, and shares the same opening night as Jeremy Geddes' Exhale in the same gallery.

As we have been noting on the site all week (can you tell we are excited?), Australian artist Jeremy Geddes will be having his US debut at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC this Saturday, October 20. The Feburaruy 2012 cover artist will be showing on the same night as fellow Aussie and extreme talent, Ashley Wood.

A coinciding show we have been looking forward to ever since we interviewed Australian artist Ashley Wood in our November 2011 issue: Wood and February 2012 cover artist, Jeremy Geddes, are set to open two solo shows at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC this Saturday, October 20. Geddes' Exhale and Wood's Machine Sabbath both have the Australian artists showing new works with a high anticipation throughout the art world.

Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to announce Decay and Overgrowth, a series of new works by Southern California-based artist and 2x Juxtapoz cover artist, Jeff Soto, in what will be his fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. Expanding upon the themes explored previously in Lifecycle, Soto’s solo 2010 exhibition, works in Decay and Overgrowth deal with the passage of time, early man and life after death, as well as primitive myths and legends attempting to explain the unknown.

Our friends at Boing Boing just posted an exclusive preview of January 2012 cover artist, Audrey Kawasaki's Midnight Reverie exhibition opening at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC on September 8, 2012. Audrey said of the work, "Some of the pieces have windows, like passage-ways into another world, yet it can also feel like limbo or static—wanting to walk through to the other side, but not being able to. Others are deep in the make believe, magical, mystical realm." More after the jump. . .

Back in 2010, when we first saw the work of Palmero, Italy based fine artist, Fulvio di Piazza, we knew there was something special going on. Now, di Piazza has a new solo show back at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, full of oil on canvas surreal mindwarps, based on the economic writings of Jeremy Rifkin, and his 1980 book, Entropy.

Doze Green opened a new solo show, Luminosity in the Dark Rift, at Jonathan LeVine in NYC last month, featuring some of our favorite Doze works to date. Colin Day, who shot a bunch of photos for us last year at Outside Lands in SF, shot a great video of Doze preparing the new works at a studio in San Francisco. A great look at former Juxtapoz cover artist, from February 2008, and his behind-the-scenes preparation.

We stopped by the Scope Art Fair yesterday evening in Miami to check out what White Walls, New Image Art, Corey Heford Gallery, Jonathan LeVine Gallery, Sloan Fine Art, and Kenton Parker's Taco Shop were looking like. Peter Gronquist's buck with guns at the White Walls booth was a showstopper.
