John Crawford's Aerial Nudes

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 15, 2014
Auckland based John Crawford's portfolio of commissioned and uncommissioned works is diverse in subject matter and mood, yet unmistakeable in its use of light and its natural, simple style. John says his aim is to capture images that have a high degree of interest and contrast, don’t look too technical, and are easy to look at and enjoy- like his series of Aerial Nudes!

The Work of Chelsey Tyler Wood

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 06, 2014
Chelsey Tyler Wood’s new series of paintings and drawings place female bodies into cramped wooden crates. Her photorealistic execution not only demonstrates her commitment to craftsmanship and detail, her renderings call into question the assumed ‘realness’ of female portrait photography in the age of Photoshop.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 23, 2013
Well, you got 3 days to check this one out if you are in Northern California. Ryan McGinley has returned to Ratio 3 in San Francisco for one of our favorite installations of the year, Yearbook, featuring an entire site-specific, immersive installation of McGinley's color portraits of... well, a ton of naked men and women who would have done well at the Arcade Fire show in Brooklyn this past weekend. To be honest, all together, in all this color, the installation is quite stunning, and you have until October 26th to see it.
