12 Paintings by Laura Owens @ Ooga Booga #2, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Definitely a show we are going to see in person if we can, because these stunning nearly 12-foot tall pieces look grand in the new Ooga Booga #2 space in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles. Ooga Booga has always been an epicenter of good art and culture in Chinatown, but this new space, especially with LA-based artist Owens' work in it, looks like it will be a great space for exhibitions in the months to come.

The Works of Amanda Charchian

Juxtapoz // Sunday, February 17, 2013
'I aim to investigate the state of alienation through realms of the physical, psycho-social and spiritual human condition. Employing 2D and 3D mediums to transmit mystical experience into matter, my art practice is a means of communicating the subconscious sphere into objects; creating possible portals to ascend beyond known reality.' Amanda Charchian is based in Los Angeles.

Llyn Foulkes @ The Hammer, LA

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 12, 2013
Among the many exciting things that happened in Los Angeles this past weekend, the Hammer opened its new exhibition featuring a retrospective of the works of Llyn Foulkes. The Hammer does a great job selecting high caliber artists that are not necessarily on everyone's radar, and this show is no exception to that statement. The exhibition features works from all stages of Foulkes' oeuvre.

Preview: Sage Vaughn "Life" @ Scion AV Installation, LA

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 11, 2013
One of our favorites here at Jutapoz, Sage Vaughn, is set to open a new show, Life, at the Scion AV Installation space in Los Angeles on Saturday, January 12. The show is described as a "body of work inspired by a word that describes almost anything; it covers so much, it means nothing." Tell that to Kanye. Tell that to Life Magazine. In fact, tell that to the cast of Facts of Life. Check a preview after the jump...

Paintings by Rui Pedro Jorge

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 18, 2012
You know when you look at David Hockney's A Bigger Splash and you get that pure joy of flat color framed into a crisp and sharpened representational picture? While maybe not entirely similar in style, it seems that Rui Pedro Jorge has taken his own flattened approach to a different type of subject. Instead of the clean lines of mid-century Los Angeles, we see fragments of brightly colored wood, real palm trees (not the plastic, Southern California kind), and detritus of an area that does not thrive from the economic success that Beverly Hills might revel in.
