Photos: "These Predicaments" by David Stoupakis

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 23, 2008
These Predicaments by pop surrealist David Stoupakis recently opened at Los Angeles' Corey Helford Gallery. For his second solo exhibition at the Gallery, Stoupakis parlays his talent for the supernatural and macabre into dramatic narratives that reveal symbolic turning points and unexpected dilemmas. C'mon, getting stuck in a house definitely counts as an unexpected dilemma, no? A delicate balance of childhood innocence and haunting imagery, the series of oil-on-panel paintings and graphite drawings recounts grim fairytales of the decadent and demure. This new series marks a new direction for the artist, as Stoupakis employs a brighter color palette than before and unveiled his largest piece to date at the exhibition, which attracted a wealth of fans to its reception. Couldn't make it out? No worries, we've got your opening night photos right over here...  

" Lost Constellations: The Art of Tara McPherson Volume 2"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 11, 2008
Loss, love, and loneliness. Altered forms and transfigured ideas. Power and vulnerability. Parallel universes of the heart and mind. Space and time. In a few brief years, the stunning visual oeuvre of Tara McPherson (Juxtapoz #72) has grown and evolved at thrilling speed. Expanding beyond the limits of rock poster art into the worlds of commercial illustration and fine art, her paintings, drawings, toys, sculptures, and installations have pushed her influence and authority across the breadth of creative expression and helped redefine the boundaries of pop surrealism. Lost Constellations: The Art of Tara McPherson Volume 2 is the compelling road map to the artist's most recent and ambitious journeys in paint, pencil, and sculpture. “The book goes to print this week and will be out by next April. We are hoping to have a couple cases of advance copies for Flatstock 20/SXSW in Austin in March. (Cross your fingers!)” Tara told us. “I am also planning a book tour in the US and Europe this summer, so be on the lookout for dates to be announced.” Pre-order available now through Dark Horse.

David Stoupakis Site Update

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 14, 2007
David Stoupakis has recently updated his site with images of the paintings from his most recent show, A Quest For Better Dreams, which took place at Strychnin Gallery in Berlin this past September. All pieces in the show were created from notes and documents about the nightmares of a girl named Emily Backman at Rosewood Hospital in Massachusetts. The works are all in Stoupakis' traditional style except that they're black and white, and the subjects are a little stranger than usual (if you can believe that). The black and white may be due to the fact that most people's dreams are not in color, and the strange is probably just because dreams are always strange. We had one once from the perspective of a pickle at a cocktail party. See more of the beautifully rendered oddities from Emily's dreams at www.davidstoupakis.com.

David Stoupakis' Art Show Soundtracks

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 08, 2007
Fans of David Stoupakis' work can now treat their ears as well as their eyes thanks to the release of Masses. The music on the two-disc set was composed by Geoff Gersh for Stoupakis' shows Beyond the Rainbow (Disc 1) and Sheep Will Follow (Disc 2). Now you can delve deeper into the moods of David's work through the magic of audio, get that full sensory immersion into the darkness of each painting. Paint your nails black first, that will probably help even more. If you're going to do something, you might as well do it right. The CD is available for $15 from the merch section of David's site. It's a limited edition of 1000 so get yours before he runs out and you're back listening to Skinny Puppy, trying and failing to get the same effect. www.davidstoupakis.com
