Juxtapoz // Saturday, January 26, 2013
Sascha Braunig's current solo show at Foxy Productions in New York will be on view until February 9th.

We had the pleasure of attending Haroshi’s second solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery.

One of the most visionary writers of his generation, Allen Ginsberg (1926–1997) was also a photographer. He began photographing actively in New York City in 1953, having his film developed and printed at a drugstore near his apartment on the Lower East Side.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 10, 2013
As you may have already known, Haroshi has made an impression on the art world in recent years for his recycled skateboard sculptures. The Japanese artist is set to open a new solo show, Virtual Reality, at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC on Saturday, January 12. The repetition of skating, the craft of perfecting the right trick, comes out in the methodical arrangement of the plywood decks into recognizable characters and shapes.

Assuming you may not have already seen this lovely solo-show by the California-based artist, the exhibition provides a breadth of new and older work from Ruscha, some adhering to his well known use of text and others venturing into more heavily visual works like the acrylic canvas painting Gilded, Marbled, and Foibled.
