Paintings on Photographs by Charlotte Caron

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 03, 2013
We are enjoying the paintings of French artist Charlotte Caron this morning. She took a very simple idea, with a nice effect, involving the humanization of animals, and animalizing humans. The artist says of the series, "This series of paintings, photographs, are trying to respond to a form of duality... ultimately creating an osmosis between the two mediums, between the animal and the portrait."

The Work of Fred Tomaselli

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 31, 2013
The SFMOMA is temporarily closing its doors in a couple of days for the construction of their new expansion. We took a last walk through yesterday evening as they count down the days and while doing so happened upon a painting by Fred Tomaselli, something we seemed to have missed the last time we were there. So, inspired, this morning we thought we would bring you a collection of the Brooklyn-based artist's work.

Simon Casson's Collage-like Paintings

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 29, 2013
We are diggin the paintings of British artist Simon Casson this morning. His casual, yet formal style incorporates a randomness that somehow all comes together to form a pretty amazing overall piece.

Paintings by Glenn Brown

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 29, 2013
We have posted the paintings of the very talented Glenn Brown before. Looking to the neo-classical and Renaissance masters for inspiration, Glenn's broad paint strokes are incredibly intricate and the paintings are often surreal and nightmare-like.

Surreal Paintings by Till Rabus

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 28, 2013
Even as Swiss artist Till Rabus' works are painted in an almost photo-realist style, his subject matter balances between myth and surrealism. He combines strange still lives with ordinary, discarded and even sometimes anthropomorphized objects. His latest work explores the human figure with tangled body parts!

GIFs of Julie Mehretu's Meticulous, Multi-Layered Painting Process

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 24, 2013
Julie Mehretu's large-scale, mixed media paintings create a dizzying field of layered landscapes to construct colorful and complex and lines. Throughout her painting process Julie will add architectural and geometric sketches in ink, smudges of acrylic paint and then sand everything down to create a smooth finish. Someone has done us the pleasure of creating GIFs of this process from a PBS video segment called "Systems." See the GIFs and watch the video after the jump...

Paintings by Eric White

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 21, 2013
We last took a look at the paintings of New York-based artist Eric White back in 2011. We feel the time has come to take another look through his past and more recent work! Eric's work is realism tinged with the surreal and occasional eroticism. His palette and imagery seems to come straight from somewhere between a Hitchcock film, the Twilight Zone, and a 1980s living room. Many of his paintings are also titled and based off scenes from old movies...
