We say decaying fine art, but the work of Valerie Hegarty is just so much more. Ravaged paitings, melting canvas, cracked walls, weathered works are all the characteristics of Hegarty's work. Valerie showed at The Queen's Nails in San Francisco earlier this year and is currently in an exhibit at The Brooklyn Museum through December 1st, 2013. The New Yorker called her work a look into "waning powers of a nation and fractured affairs of state." Perhaps of all culture in general?

Allouche Gallery is pleased to present, PAUL INSECT: 2033, Original Works Created in 2014, on December 13.

After seeing Hockney's masterful show at the de Young Museum in San Francisco at the end of 2013, the Juxtapoz office has been obsessed with the work ethic of Hockney. The man just knows his way around a paint brush, an iPad, a camera, etc. We know that, you know that. Now he has a new show at Pace Gallery in NYC, "Some New Painting (and Photography)," which is Hockney’s first exhibition of works completed since his return to Los Angeles from England.
