North Carolina-based artist Christina Cordova's ceramic sculptures range from 'tabletop size to larger than life. Some are black, others white. They may be riding a beast, or adrift on a boat, or perched on an island in an archipelago, ready to hop to the next place.' "I feel my work performs in different layers,” she says...

Former Juxtapoz cover artist and continually pushing the boundaries of language and abstraction, José Parlá spent the summer working on a site-specific mural in Raleigh in conjunction with SNØHETTA and North Carolina State University at the James B.

Ryan Travis Christian, who we featured in the January 2013 issue, just opened a brand new exhibition, Well, Here We Aren't Again, at CAM Raleigh in North Carolina.

The work is on display through June 17, 2013.

Metalmorphosis is a moving, mirrored fountain and 14-ton sculpture in Charlotte, North Carolina by Czech artist David ?erný. The steel layers of the sculpture rotate and at time, align to create a coherent and massive head. And it has a webcam aimed at it. We just showed you Cerny's gun installation in Prague this past week...

James "Dalek" Marshall (cover of our April 2008 issue) just painted a new mural at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) in Winston Salem, North Carolina for the new exhibition North Carolina New Contemporary. Marshall also created a timelapse of the piece as well, that you can see after the jump . . .
