In the Magazine: Brecht Vandenbroucke

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 12, 2014
One wouldn't be out of line to presume that Vandenbroucke spends a fair amount of time on the Internet. Or perhaps he really spends a very normal amount of time online and just documents and processes that experience in his artwork in a memorable way. The graphics, icons and even the frames through which we experience the digital world—and how that changes our experience of regular flesh and blood life—all leap out with dramatic dimension in Vandenbroucke’s distinctive line and color.

In the Magazine: Jenny Morgan

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 08, 2014
Adding something fresh and necessary to the genre of portraiture may seem impossible, but in that realm, Jenny Morgan is crushing it. Don’t label her paintings figurative or photoreal. Her extraordinary skills for rendering the human figure are beside the point. Layers of the unconscious are revealed in the reductive abstraction of her portraits...

Paintings by Zhao Jinhe

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 05, 2014
Zhao Jinhe was born and raised in China. His work addresses the dramatic shifts in culture the country is experiencing, the materiality of the modern world clashing with traditional values.

"Nudes" by Victoria Selbach

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. The light moving throughout many of her paintings only partially reveals what is present and creates the architecture of each piece.

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.
