Paintings by Léopold Rabus

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 19, 2015
This morning we take a look at the work of Swiss artist Leopold Rabus. The figures in Rabus' work are very often gruesome, awkward, a little crazy and darkly humorous. They are reconfigurations and caricatures of people from his neighborhood and life in Neuchatel.

Stunning Paintings by China's Zhang Linhai

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 19, 2015
Chinese artist Zhang Linhai's paintings are surreal but politically charged pieces of art that take the anonymous, homogenous character and places them in either isolation or repetitive masses. The result is an unblinding support for an ominous power.

Paintings and Pastels by Lisa Yuskavage @ David Zwirner, NY

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 15, 2015
Lisa Yuskavage currently has an exhibition of paintings and pastels on view at David Zwirner in New York. Yuskavage’s works merge popular culture and a deep engagement with the history of art. Widely associated with a re-emergence of the figurative in contemporary painting, she has always maintained the primacy of color, with her narratives intricately based in her use of paint. In this new selection of works, atonal and prismatic spectrums appear as personifications of themselves, and her characters become...

Things That Shine: Paintings by Jungwook Kim

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 14, 2015
The silent state of the figures is derived from Jungwook Kim’s way of life. She records every moment of life with her head and mind, and opens herself up to all kinds of forms and methods of life. Like a contemplative and observant poet writing down a line implying thoughts and memories about life, living things, death and people, she delivers her feelings through repetitive brush strokes.

Rune Christensen is a self-taught artist from Denmark. He mainly works with acrylic and Posca, a water-based marker to paint on all surfaces.

Paintings and Collages by Nadira Husain

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 06, 2015
Our relation to images is conditioned by the various pictorial conventions of Western culture. Paris and Berlin-based artist Nadira Husain addresses them in her work, albeit decidedly not from a traditional Western male perspective. Her generally figurative pictures display the influence of both Indian miniatures and the feminist theoretical apparatus.
