Paintings by Ruben Pang

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 24, 2014
Ruben Pang’s vibrant and ethereal work combines fluid technique with a kaleidoscopic palette. Without a preconceived image of the final composition, Pang’s artistic process evolves throughout the painting’s genesis, removing the boundary between abstraction and representation.

Brian Adam Douglas' Cut Paper Painting

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 21, 2014
Brian Adam Douglas (aka ELBOW-TOE) uses a unique cut paper and collage technique he calls 'paper painting.' Painting individual parts of paper, he carefully cuts them and sticks them to a wooden panel to create the final painting-like composition. "Forgoing the relative ease and fluidly of the brush stroke, the artist methodically builds his compositions through shards of color incised from sheets of paper..."

Sittin’ here resting my bones, and this loneliness won’t leave me alone.” Like Otis Redding, Brett Amory left the South and came out West, finding himself pondering, among other things, the big city and its expanse of solitude.

Painter Max Kauffman opens a duo show with sculptor Marcelo Macedo that opened Friday, November 14 at Low Gallery in San Diego. The duo show is called Innate Practices, and Max described his latest work to us, “I call the series Blood Meridian based on the book by Cormac McCarthy.

Juxtapoz Hyperreal: Magic - Jen Mann

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 06, 2014
Ask Jen Mann where she likes to spend the majority of her time and the answer comes easily: “my studio.” Other answers, however, are not so quickly accessed. Mann’s continued foray into painting comes from a deep-seated love for existential philosophy, and working becomes a way to examine these sometimes difficult and often endless ideas. Still, despite such esoteric thinking, this type of processing works flawlessly for her.

David Dalla Venezia "Psychophagomenos" @ Burkhard Eikelmann Galerie

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 31, 2014
I first met David Dalla Venezia outside the museum that hosted an exhibition of the late pictures of Tiziano Vecellio, who is known simply as “Titian” in America. Considered the most important member of the 16th Century Venetian School, Titian was commonly referred to during life time as “da Cadore,” meaning from the town of his birth: Cadore. Similarly Dalla Venezia’s family name originated from the 18th Century custom to give orphaned children a surname based on the town where they were found.
