Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 31, 2014
This morning we take a look Victoria Selbach's nudes. Victoria uses light and shadow to as an underlying abstraction to what the mind is tuned to see: the woman and human form.

Nosego "Open Channels" @ Thinkspace Gallery

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Concurrently on view at Thinkspace are new works by Philadelphia based artist Yis Goodwin, aka Nosego, in Open Channels. A highly accomplished fine artist, illustrator, and street artist, Nosego’s works are visionary. Simultaneously totemic and whimsical, the artist’s imagery seamlessly combines the flippancy and play of humor with the suggestion of an imposing, even mythically ancient, source of animalistic power. Imaginatively beautiful and strangely grotesque, Nosego captures a myriad of conflicting...

Animal Body Art by Gesine Marwedel

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
From a flamingo to a pelican, an owl to a swan Gesine Marwedel paints these animals and more on nude figures. After perfectly positioning the models limbs, the soft lines and brush strokes come together to complete the shape of each creature. Each figure is then photographed as partners and individuals hold a nude, yoga-like, comparably contortionist pose to create the illusion of the natural characteristic curvatures of the animals. Against a background of a black or white negative space, the images jump out at you as if the animals were in their natural habitats.

The Work of Olaf Hajek

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 11, 2014
Although German artist Olaf Hajek is best known for his illustrations accompanying stories in everything from The New York Times to Playboy, it's no question that his angular and surreal works can stand on their own. With stong, graphic lines, dreamlike colors, and rustic, stylized forms...  

Joram Roukes "Paramnesia" @ Thinkspace Gallery

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 11, 2014
Next Saturday, July 19th, Thinkspace will be presenting new works by Dutch artist Joram Roukes (April, 2013) in Paramnesia. Roukes has been residing and working in Los Angeles over the past six months, drawing inspiration from his time spent in the city for this new body of work. Combining imagery distilled from the observed and the imagined, the artist’s paintings invoke a schizophrenic contemporaneity colonized by both disaster and desire. Roukes’ works present us with fractured identities and chasmic experiences: frayed realities ambiguously dramatized through the aberrations of fantasy

The Works of Marcelo Daldoce

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 02, 2014
Based out of New York City, Marcelo Daldoce, is a full-time artist that believes art making is a calling, study, leisure, therapy, and pleasure. Self-taught starting at the age of 16, he pursued painting throughout his studies landing him numerous group and focused exhibitions. Transforming the traditional painting, Daldoce creates a fine line between illusion and reality, slicing figures with geometric folds and patterns that jolt the conventional two-dimensional perspective. Each piece eccentrically focuses the eye so well it’s mesmerizing how precise his folded paintings bring a flat surface to life.
