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.”

Paintings by Mernet Larson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Mernet Larson's paintings are filled with a diverse array of cues that suggest various past artists from De Chirico to Lissitzky. Her most recent three bodies of work (or "three chapters as the title of her show") focus on heads and bodies, places, and narratives.

Illustrator and comic artist Joshua Boulet has a couple new pieces completed, and available for your wall if you feel so inclined. His 5Points illustration of a New York scene is pretty intricate and amazing- full of all kinds of elements from the street in high contrast black on white. Thanks for the reader submission Joshua!
