Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 15, 2014
The Quiet Earth is the title of Craig Harrison’s short story, where the protagonist wakes up in a world where mankind and all creatures seemingly have vanished from the surface of the Earth. This mystery has a lot in common with Christer Karlstad’s existential tableaux...

For the past 3 years, we have been invited to Stavanger, Norway to participate in the NuArt Festival, where an international roster of street and public artists convene on the west coast of the country to create a yearly project that combines art, city planning, and good old-fashioned street intervention.

The Work of Øivin Horvei

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 30, 2013
In the September issue of Juxtapoz Magazine we spoke with Oslo native Øivin Horvei as he and his 12-year-old daughter followed this wife to Boston where she took a position at Harvard's Graduate School of Education. Setting up a small studio in his new home, he continued his playful mixed media work and we spoke about the idiosyncratic Harvard bubble, parenting, and what, to an American, seems like an astonishing level of government support given to the average Norwegian.

ERIK SÆTER JØRGENSEN "All Watched Over" @ Reed Projects, Stavanger, Norway

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 08, 2013
It gives Reed Projects great pleasure to introduce this exhibition and in particular, this artist to the gallery. Erik has been on our radar for quite sometime and when we first saw this series, knew immediately that it was right for Reed Projects. Erik is a self taught artist and a recognised (often outspoken) creative force in the regions visual art scene, unafraid to confront and challenge traditional fine art institutions, including those established to support fellow artists, Erik has successfully fought to be formally recognised as a professional artist. 

Sohlbergplassen View Point by Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 09, 2013
We love this observation deck designed by Norwegian architect Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk. Inspired by the painting "Winter Night in the Mountains" by Harald Sohlberg, the architect perfectly integrates the structure into the environment, giving visitors of the first Norwegian national park a view of the seemingly blue mountain range.
