Riikka Hyvönen's "Roller Derby Kisses"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 01, 2015
Riikka Hyvönen started working with the bruises – called ‘kisses’ by roller derby – through collecting photographs of roller derby girls’ butts. She then captured the athletes’ injuries in giant artworks. “I hope people will see the beauty of bruises,” Hyvönen says. Pop, kitsch, and perhaps even slightly camp in their glittery leather glory, the 3D objects, made by Hyvönen are somewhere between sculptures and paintings.

Hilary Pecis and Her Postmodern Landscapes

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 30, 2015
We’re long-time fans of Hilary Pecis’ incredible paintings, which also incorporate ink and collage. Her themes are political: a critique of consumerism and fetishization of objects, as well as exploring the human relationship to landscape.

The Broken Realism of Eckart Hahn

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 28, 2015
Eckart Hahn and his Broken Realism are celebrated throughout his native Germany. The self-taught painter switched from oil to acrylic to be able to focus on one intense project at a time; his large-scale canvases exude not only precision painting, but also a mind at play with unanswered questions.

The Art of Fredrik Söderberg

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 28, 2015
Stockholm-based artist Fredrik Söderberg has spent the past years exploring art's connection to the occult world and to different esoteric traditions. Religion, religious experiences and meditation are important parts of his artistic work and his life.  In many of his works "a cosmic abstract expression is paired with an accurate figurative and archetypal style, incorporating pure and intricate Mandela images inspired from Tibetan Buddhism and Native American nature religion and traditional crafts, all meticulously executed in watercolor, mineral colors and gold leaf."

Paintings by Christopher Murphy

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 18, 2015
Christopher Murphy sees his paintings and drawings as opportunities to "explore the conceptual contrasts of reality versus illusory and permanence versus ephemeral as applied to memory." Using old family photographs, Christopher obscures the reality that existed at the moment of the photo by drawing upon the blank stares, static poses, and skewed colors that often exist in dated photos. 

Brad Kahlhamers Explorations of Native American Identity and Authenticity

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 15, 2015
We’re fascinated with Brad Kahlhamer’s extensive multi-media exploration of themes related to Native American identity and authenticity. His work includes paintings, drawings, sculpture and music. Hiss imagery pulls from traditional Native American visual vocabulary but places it in a contemporary context.

"Content Void Content" and "Haywire" at Catherine Clark Gallery

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 09, 2015
On September 12th, the Catherine Clark Gallery is opening two simultaneous exhibitions of work—Content Void Content and Haywire. Content Void Content includes mirrored sculptures by Andy Diaz Hope “which combine ancient mathematics, traditional craft, and modern technology to explore unlikely sources of transcendence.” Haywire is an exhibition of paintings by Kara Maria “which blend abstract and representational traditions in a visual dialogue about the bizarre, precarious, and yet alluring state of our environment.”

Ed Templeton "Common Side Effects" & 5 Local Photographers

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 08, 2015
Skateboarding icon, painter, photographer, drawer, people-watcher, beautiful loser, #dailyhbpierphoto-er, and all around talented person, Ed Templeton, will be opening Common Side Effects, a survey of old work along with new paintings and drawings directly inspired from this immersion into his coastal suburban environment. Common Side Effects extends Templeton’s diaristic observances into a compelling visual analysis of the concrete experiences, perceptions, and idiosyncrasies of this hyper-local existence.

Paul Wunderlich's Surrealist nudes

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 03, 2015
Paul Wunderlich was a German painter, sculptor and graphic artist. Influenced by the Art Deco and Art Nouveau movements, his work showcases nudes which were siezed in the 1960s due to their indecent nature. This Surrealist series is brought together by pops of vibrant red in each piece.
