As you maybe saw on the site last week, we did a studio visit with San Francisco-based artist, Mars-1, as he prepared for his solo show, "Toward A Distant Dawn," at Martha Otero Gallery in Los Angeles. That show opened this past Saturday, and we got in the old van and drove down to the Southland to see our neighbor show off his new paintings and impressive bronze sculptures. Don't try and lift those. They are heavy.

Towards A Distant Dawn is an exhibition of new paintings and sculptures by San Francisco-based artist Mario Martinez (aka Mars-1) opening at Martha Otero Gallery this Saturday, June 7th, 2014. Mario Martinez's concepts are informed by cosmology, ufology, altered states of consciousness, his psyche and its relationship to space.

If you have received your copy of the December 2013 issue (and if you subscribe now you can get that issue for free), then you know we had a grand feature on NYC-based Eric White, written by Carlo McCormick. And if you saw that piece, you know that we were printing it in conjunction with White's solo show, "All of This Has Not Occurred," that opened at Martha Otero Gallery in LA this past weekend. We plan these things.

We like to time these things. Just in time for Eric White's feature in our new issue to hit newsstands, the NYC-based painter will open a new exhibition, All Of This Has Not Occurred, at Martha Otero Gallery in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 9. We will be there checking out the work in person, so a small preview-only today...

We recently stopped by Martha Otero Gallery for the opening reception of “Charge,” Tim Biskup’s latest solo exhibition. Taken back by this new body of work, Biskup never ceases to amaze us with his constant natural progression throughout the years. Biskup seems to take a fearless approach with his artistic evolution, and somehow does it flawlessly.

With Tim Biskup’s latest solo show coming up this Saturday, September 28th at Martha Otero Gallery in Los Angeles, we were invited to stop by the artist's studio for a sneak peek at what he has been working on for the past few months! Watching an already talented and skilled artist like Tim grow and develop throughout the years he never seizes to amaze me, the same goes for this new body of work. Photos and more after the jump.

Martha Otero Gallery is pleased to present Charge, an exhibition by Juxtapoz favorite, Tim Biskup, featuring a new body of work. The title, Charge, holds complex personal references for Biskup. To be 'charged' or to be 'in charge' is to feel psychologically or emotively 'charged' as in renewed, revived and empowered. In particle physics, the theory of 'color charge' refers to an abstract concept of positive and negative values.

We recently stopped by Martha Otero Gallery for the opening reception of Alvaro Ilizarbe’s latest exhibition, “Surveying.” For this exhibition, Ilizarbe showcases new paintings and a site-specific installation. He depicts landscape imagery on topographical tectonic plate shaped panels. The amorphous sculptural wall structures lead through a passageway of patterned wallpapers portraying the elements in the earth’s stratum. Photos and more after the jump…

Definitely something we are looking forward to, as Jen Stark is one of our favorite artists at the moment. Martha Otero Gallery is pleased to present Jen Stark's first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, To the Power Of. Stark's work is instantly recognizable for its breathtaking color spectrums rendered in mind-bending forms cut from paper, wood and other organic materials.
