Jonathan Levine Gallery invited us to the opening reception of Machine Sabbath, the new series of paintings, mix media collages and sculptures by Australian artist Ashley Wood.

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.”

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 19, 2012
Tonight, Ocotber 19 at PRISM Gallery in Los Angeles, San Francisco-based Clare Rojas will be opening her second solo presentation at the gallery. Entitled Pith, this body of paintings signals a further exploration for Rojas, in respect to both subject and materiality. In this exhibition, we observe the artist’s concentration on abstract space and the blurring between architectural dimensionality and geometric flatness.

Opening: Ryan Travis Christian "The Second Banana" @ Guerrero Gallery, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 17, 2012
As we prepare a larger look at Ryan Travis Christian's work in the print magazine, the Chicago-based artist just opened a new solo exhibition, The Second Banana, at Guerrero Gallery in San Francisco. We think of Christian's work as a psychedelic trip animated by an artist in the 1930s. It just has that vintage feel to it. Maybe that is why we like it so much.
