Paintings by Christopher Murphy

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 23, 2014
Christopher Murphy sees his paintings and drawings as opportunities to "explore the conceptual contrasts of reality versus illusory and permanence versus ephemeral as applied to memory." Using old family photographs, Christopher obscures the reality that existed at the moment of the photo by drawing upon the blank stares, static poses, and skewed colors that often exist in dated photos.

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 15, 2014
Italian artist Laurina Paperina lives in Brooklyn and makes dark, funny, comic paintings depicting imagined scenes from pop culture, and imaginary murders of blue chip artists. In her mind, painting her favorite artists' demise is a compliment—she likes their work so much she wants to kill them!

In the Magazine: Joyce Pensato

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 12, 2014
Having lived in Brooklyn her entire life, Joyce has watched the surroundings and the people in them transform rapidly. Unlike most natives, she remains unusually optimistic despite being pushed out of her studio of three decades just a few years ago. In one area of her studio, a torrent of paint splatters are gradually building on every surface, as one-gallon buckets of 1-Shot enamel, the predominant choice of sign painters, are scattered about. Stepping closer into this corner, the distinctively toxic smell of paint permeates the air. 

Paintings and Drawings by Henrietta Harris

New Zealand artist Henrietta Harris' drawings, range in subject from hands, faces, brains, and more are depicted on canvases, t-shirts, and fine print publications. Her paintings often involve portraiture with a departure into the surreal with faces sometimes obscured and misplaced by the clean sweep of a brushstroke.

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 12, 2014
Hubert de Lartigue currently lives and works in Vitry-sur-Seine near Paris. His newest work is super sensual airbrush. He says, “What'smore anonymous than a detail? What could be more intimate, too? For the perspective of the viewer on such details is only possible with very close proximity, the distance at which it is possible to perceive the scent of the other…”

A Visit with Kevin Earl Taylor

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 10, 2014
We stopped by Kevin Earl Taylor's San Francisco studio ahead of his upcoming exhibit with David Ellis at Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles this weekend. Taylor’s paintings depict stark, surreal landscapes that seem like moments frozen in time. Animals and animal parts confront the viewer and each other, forms tied together by a common visual thread or somehow fused into one another and their surroundings...
