Hamishi Farah "albeit tho" @ Blackartprojects, Melbourne

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 19, 2014
A fantastic collection of new media-centric paintings just opened up at Blackartprojects in Melbourne from Australian artist Hamishi Farah. "Albeit Tho" is exampled as "Painting as a platform to look at and around the physicality of digital images in an accelerated and image saturated discourse. IRL art production and .jpg economy as the out of sync video leaving a physical object as ephemera. Microblogging going macro, a misstep into the poetics of digital space, 'the feed' or 'stream' as anthology."

Drawings by Jessica Stewart

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 24, 2014
'The works under When You Escape are artist Jessica Stewart’s musings on dreams and those who wander lost in their imagined worlds. Dreams are vast, beautiful, consuming, unstable places built from secrets and fears, desires and damages. They are completely of our own individual constructions, but they are not safe.'

Video Preview: Michael Peck "Love & Fear" @ Metro Gallery, Melbourne

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 30, 2013
Michael Peck, who has been profiled in the magazine in the past, just sent us a stunning preview video in conjunction with his new body of work and exhibition, Love & Fear, premiering at Metro Gallery in Melbourne this November 16, 2013. The video was shot during Peck's 3 month artist in residency earlier this year at Birrarung House in Melbourne’s fringe bush land, and, in being there, Peck was "inspired by the isolation of the surrounding landscape... reimagin(ing) the human experience within a familiar yet somewhat inexplicable environment."

RMIT Students Paint an Anatomical Man

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 28, 2013
Students at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) spent 18 hours fully painting a man into a highly-detailed and biologically accurate anatomical man. Using layers of pigment, the students colored the muscles and tendons to be a representation of the human body without skin. The project was a response to a national decline in time spent on anatomy in universities. Watch a timelapse after the jump...

"Over unto Silence," Photographs by Jessica Tremp

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 08, 2013
Melbourne-based photographer Jessica Tremp's series 'Over unto Silence' explores that deep emotionally sick stomach feling. She says the series "could be death by foot in mouth disease if you will or doomsday anxiety." Tremp tries to use organic, spontaneous natural lighting in her photographs and will often use herself as a model.

Photorealistic Works by JKB Fletcher

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 21, 2012
JKB Fletcher is a working artist from the UK, living in Melbourne, Australia. "My hopes are for Australia to provide a new cultural influence to my work and a maturity only developed through experience. My paintings address questions of whether photorealism or hyperrealism is anything more than a photograph with oil based paint. Using ‘reality’ and sensuality, Surface, texture, contrast and form to provoke thoughts and sensations of physicality and beauty" he states.

Patrick Dougherty's "Ballroom" at Melbourne's Federation Square

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 15, 2012
Similar to the evasive plant Kudzu here in America, the Australian willow tree has become a nuisance and problem for other vegetation, even affecting the habitat of fish and local wildlife. Dougherty recognizes the over abundance of the willow tree saplings and sticks utilizing them for this outdoor sculpture in part of his “Stickwork” series.

Review: Jeremy Geddes "Exhale" @ Jonathan LeVine, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 22, 2012
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.”
