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.

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.

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.

Her paintings often involve portraiture with a departure into the surreal with faces sometimes obscured and misplaced by the clean sweep of a brushstroke.
