For the past 14 years, Spazuk has developed and perfected a unique technique that allows him to use the flame of a candle or the flame of a torch as a pencil to create his paintings with trails of soot. Using various tools, he intuitively sculpt the plumes of soot left behind in response to the shapes that appear on the canvas.

In the Magazine: Alex Roulette

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 24, 2014
Artists often emulate their interests, and when Alex Roulette mentioned his affinity for the depth of emotion that can be conveyed in a short story, there was an obvious parallel with his work. I already wanted to read a book that could tie his paintings together. His work could easily accompany a New Yorker fiction piece, and yet it transcends illustrative nature. The paintings are the meat of the story.

Paintings and Sculptures by Timothy H Lee

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 24, 2014
Continuously searching for novel visual solutions in an attempt to reconcile his artistic, scientific, and cultural backgrounds, Timothy Lee creates pieces that blur the boundaries between two dimensions and three. Fueled by his formal training in neuroscience and drawing, Lee embarks on daring adventures that experiment with space, scale, and the materiality of his mediums.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 22, 2014

We are really into the paintings of Erica Elan Ciganek. She says: "Intimacy and vastness are an interesting dichotomy that seems to have wrapped my work together." 

Markus Linnenbrink’s Hypnotic Rainbow Installations

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 14, 2014
New York-based German artist Markus Linnenbrink’s work is the kind that one walks into and becomes a part of. Line, color and playful boundaries have become his signature. Linnenbrink has featured conventional paint on canvas work but no matter what, he utilizes the space to full effect.

In the Magazine: Alex Gross

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 09, 2014
Alex Gross paints intense images of an ominous future. In fact, the future isn’t so distant, it’s here. And it isn’t full of flying cars or “robot servants bringing us drinks,” as the artist points out in this interview. I caught up with this design-minded oil painter just before the opening of his new exhibition, Future Tense, alongside the release of his new monograph of the same name. This doubly meaningful title is poignant and accurately describes our precarious surroundings for the foreseeable future. The future’s so tense, you gotta wear shades. And if you’re a figure in an Alex Gross painting, those shades are probably Gucci.
