The Work of Øivin Horvei

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 30, 2013
In the September issue of Juxtapoz Magazine we spoke with Oslo native Øivin Horvei as he and his 12-year-old daughter followed this wife to Boston where she took a position at Harvard's Graduate School of Education. Setting up a small studio in his new home, he continued his playful mixed media work and we spoke about the idiosyncratic Harvard bubble, parenting, and what, to an American, seems like an astonishing level of government support given to the average Norwegian.

This morning we take a look at the work of Kirsty Whiten. Kirsty initially gained notice for her large-scale portrait paintings and photorealistic drawings but her work has diversified in recent years to include sculpture and photography. Kirsty was profiled in June 2009 issue of Juxtapoz Magazine where she commented on her fascination with the "psychological power that women have over men" and how the 'dominance within relationships is something that's taken and given, in a quite a fragile way."

The Art of Sabhan Adam

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
The creatures found in self-taught Syrian painter Sabhan Adam's work could only be found in nightmares. The variety of dark and gruesome creatures all have a face that is similar to his own. "The figures I paint have so many things in common with me--they look like me, they have the same head and the same asian eyes as me. I draw myself with everything that exists inside--the sadness, the misery, the shocking things I have faced, the isolation, and the feeling of not belonging to this world."
