We are enjoying the works of Los Angeles-based artist Marion Lane this morning. 'Though Lane's paintings look something like hybrids between amoeba DNA and corner-shop candies, they contain hints of all the vital ingredients of the city's make-up, from sun and sea to concrete and steel - rendered with such hypnotic appeal that it's hard to look away.'

Dante Ross curated this latest parade of McNett’s trademark characters, choosing to highlight their ferocity on the high walls, giving each creature enough space to guard their territory...

Looking forward to checking out the new body of work from Juxtapoz favorite Christine Wu when she opens Come Home at La Luz de Jesus in Los Angeles on November 1, 2013. Her dreamy, surreal, and often erotic paintings have captured our attention over the past year, and as La Luz de Jesus notes, "Stylistically, her work is multi-layered, with haunting and sexual undertones. She often depicts people in flux, capturing the vulnerability of self discovery and the lingering ghosts of memories best left to the past."
