The Paintings of Ana Teresa Fernandez

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 30, 2012
Ablution is a series of paintings that derive from performances that submerges the body into specific sites, addressing rituals of cleansing and maintenance, focusing on gender, labor, sexuality and race. What does it mean to be clean in today’s society?

Ballpoint Pen Drawing by Samuel Silva

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 23, 2012
Yes, that is right. This is a ballpoint pen drawing. Samuel Silva, the artist, used 8 different colors taking 30 hours to complete it. No other media. Simply 100 % ballpoint pen. Silva is Portugal-based attorney who does art as a "hobby." I don't think much more needs to be said. Just look at it.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 15, 2012
We like to think that we just made up the term Photoreal Pointillism (although a tad redundant), but we love these acrylic pieces by William Betts.

I was fortunate enough to come across Robert Longo, an amazing artist focusing on hyperrealism at massive scale.

Candy and Comics: The Oil Paintings of Doug Bloodworth

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 09, 2012
Look, we often show photorealism on this site, we know that, we enjoy the skill involved. That said, we passed over Doug Bloodworth's this morning, and thought it was just a well-executed photo of a Spider-Man comic with Oreo cookies strewn on top. No, this is an oil painting, and its really, really well-done.

Wrapped in Plastic: Paintings by Robin Eley

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 04, 2012
"My paintings are essays of observation, born from a relentless examination of my mileu. Rather than shout, my paintings speak softly. Their messages, both personal and profound, audible only to those who make the effort to listen. By documenting time, I attempt to slow its quickening pace; such that for the briefest of moments there is just the viewer, my painting and the space between."
