Juxtapoz // Monday, November 17, 2014
Painter Max Kauffman opens a duo show with sculptor Marcelo Macedo that opened Friday, November 14 at Low Gallery in San Diego. The duo show is called Innate Practices, and Max described his latest work to us, “I call the series Blood Meridian based on the book by Cormac McCarthy. I love how his writing goes off on these huge tangents of descriptive language of the landscape around, it just creates fully realized imagery in my head.”

Juxtapoz Hyperreal: Magic - Jen Mann

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 06, 2014
Ask Jen Mann where she likes to spend the majority of her time and the answer comes easily: “my studio.” Other answers, however, are not so quickly accessed. Mann’s continued foray into painting comes from a deep-seated love for existential philosophy, and working becomes a way to examine these sometimes difficult and often endless ideas. Still, despite such esoteric thinking, this type of processing works flawlessly for her.

David Dalla Venezia "Psychophagomenos" @ Burkhard Eikelmann Galerie

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 31, 2014
I first met David Dalla Venezia outside the museum that hosted an exhibition of the late pictures of Tiziano Vecellio, who is known simply as “Titian” in America. Considered the most important member of the 16th Century Venetian School, Titian was commonly referred to during life time as “da Cadore,” meaning from the town of his birth: Cadore. Similarly Dalla Venezia’s family name originated from the 18th Century custom to give orphaned children a surname based on the town where they were found.

Jung-Yeon Min's Investigations of Time

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 29, 2014
Jung Yeon Min’s works are highly imaginative and rich. One finds multiple worlds, the extraordinary and the realistic, notions of micro and macro, and manipulations of space and time in her work. Specifically, her work offers two equal but divergent investigations. On the one hand, she envisions and explores a mysterious and fantastical world.

The Work of Hayv Kahraman

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 28, 2014
To Iraqi artist Hayv Kahraman, "the body as object and as subject has a central function within his work."  Kahraman's paintings explore the victimization and displacement of women and 'social spatiality in which notions of hybridity, Diaspora and the third space are prevalent."
