Opening: Vhils "Devoid" @ Lazarides Rathbone, London

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 10, 2012
One of our favorite contemporary artists, Vhils, just opened a new exhibition, Devoid, at Lazarides' Rathbone space in London. The work focuses on the "individual in relation to the overpowering force of urban environments. Working with the city as the prime material, Vhils has used what the urban environment offers in its most derelict spaces as both a location and as a source for materials from wood scraps to rusty metal, discarded billboards and other debris produced by its inhabitants."

Ian Francis "10,000 Years From Now" @ Lazarides Rathbone, London

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 26, 2012
We were very excited to see the title of Ian Francis' newest exhibition, 10,000 Years From Now. Obviously, his work resonates with this title perfectly. There seems to be this distant future mixed with familiar figurative elements in each Francis painting, a surreal, mystical experience that has a foundation of contemporary. Francis' latest body of work examines the "fragility of this lifetime in contrast to geological timescales."
