Sculptures and Paintings by Kim Kei

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 26, 2014
Los Angeles-based artist Kim Kei begins her process by combining and altering everyday objects and natural debris. These malleable sculptures are photographed in several iterations, which become the foundation for her paintings. Her intricate, improvised compositions exist somewhere between representation and abstraction. Her work is a departure from the figure as a form, yet in its absence the body is implied.

In the Magazine: Maja Ruznic

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 25, 2014
To live life bearing the emotional stress of being forced to flee one's homeland is a concept many of us can’t comprehend. To live one's life creatively expressing the emotions wrested from such an experience is an entirely different challenge altogether. Maja Ruznic is a survivor of one of the most brutal ethnic and religious conflicts of our generation, and in her paintings, she reassembles these fractured existences from without and within...

Scott Greenwalt in his Studio

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Behind the scenes of any functioning system exists a complex internal mechanism, acting and reacting, coordinating and handling all inner operations. Often, this intricate arrangement exists without an outward visible presence, but we trust it's there, all cylinders bobbing in sync...

Watch: Tone by Trent Jaklitsch

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 19, 2014
A remarkable short film documenting painting in minuscule shots, New York filmmaker Trent Jaklitsch creates mind-blowing macro sequences of paint. Rather than having the focus be the end-all painting, it hones on the act of painting. From simply making art, to mixing paint, to the bold, and to the subtle strokes applied, Jaklitsch brings all the above to our attention.

The Paintings of Adam Lupton

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 19, 2014
“Canadian artist Adam Lupton‘s gaze explores psychological and sociological struggles in modern society. Painting in oil, blurring lines between realism and expressionism helps Lupton probe the internal and external dialogue faced in his multi-directional narratives. His recent work pits moments of choice against the visualization of their outcomes: temporal planes coexisting on a singular surface. With the notion of quantum mechanics having every possible outcome to a situation realized in splintered universes, he paints figures with varied levels of connection to reality.” 

Paintings by Phil Hale

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 15, 2014
London-based painter Phil Hale's "current work focuses on figure as well, in depictions of slightly surreal scenes with strange characters performing various physical feats, usually in a confrontation of some sort. He seems to take keen interest in tension and emphasis of angular and dynamic aspects of the figure, almost always incorporating slight anatomical distortions to great effect."
