Look at What Came Before, and That Will be the Future.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 10, 2014
David Marc Grant's newest work will be presented at White Walls Project Space, opening reception is September 13, 7 to 11 pm. Through his work, Grant opens a dialogue on geo-political issues with colorful landscapes, structures and technology drawn from ideas of various utopian and dystopian fictions, drawing influences from the constructivist/suprematist movement, Persian miniaturists, op, pop, advertising, comics, science fiction films and contemporary lowbrow. 

Cheery Paintings by Lampu Kansanoh

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 10, 2014
We are enjoying the bright and cheery paintings of Thai artist Lampu Kansanoh this morning. "No one else captures the happy-go-lucky nature of the Thai quite like her. In her works the carefree and joyful expression of her characters are exuberantly intensified by their exaggerated features: their melon-sized heads, engorged cheeks and exposed teeth."

An Update with Jon Fox

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 09, 2014
Today we check in with UK artist Jon Fox, who was featured in our New Contemporary book last year. Fox will be taking part in group show we are excited about, "Égrégore", at Yves Laroche Gallery in Montreal, Canada later this fall. His work often addresses the conflict of emotion: 'heart against head.' Many of his characters occupy a world of tension and turmoil battling with their own significance while the looming presence of a larger restless energy is at work around them. 

Rajni Perera's "Afrika Galaktika" (and more)

A Sri-Lankan born artist whose work floats between Western and Immigrant culture, Rajni Perera's work is an East-West dialogue of ideas, concerning immigrant identity issues (being an immigrant), female sexuality (being a woman), and science fiction and fantasy (being someone who enjoys science fiction and the dreams behind the genres). Currently cross-translating between the visual languages of Indian miniaturist art, Blaxploitation, and the images produced by the Hubble Deep Field Telescope, the work becomes a record of impossible discoveries and mythical creations.

In the Magazine: Cleon Peterson

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 08, 2014
Cleon Peterson is not a painting. You are probably thinking to yourself, “No shit.” But you and I both know that the type of work Cleon Peterson produces brings up many questions about self and authorship. Let’s get that point out of the way immediately because we live in a time of extreme self-exposure and explanation, and I just want to make sure you’re with me...

Casey Gray "Of Land & Sea" @ Circuit 12, Dallas

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 04, 2014
San Francisco-based artist Casey Gray is one of the most exciting artists we have had a chance to cover over the past few years. He has a way of turning a painting of a flower or a table setting or a beach scene into a psychedelic blitz of color and geometric dizziness. When we first spoke to Casey Gray, his palette was definitely a reflection of growing up in California. “Growing up fifteen minutes from the beach...
