Portland-based digital artist Zack Dougherty's latest project is a collection of simple, yet clever series of hypnotizing GIFs. The strange moving sculptures/GIFs evolve, spin, and rapidly burst in a hypnotic manner.

We would love to see Portland-based artist Damien Gilley's perceptual installations in person. Combining drawing and sculpture, Gilley references science fiction, non-Euclidiean geometry, and vintage computer graphics in his illusions and wall drawings.

Breeze Block Gallery is proud to present Controlled Spaces, an all-new collection of work by Berkeley-based artist Mario Wagner. Wagner has always been an artist that Juxtapoz admires, a rare mix of collage and fine art that takes aesthetics of James Bond, vintage sci-fi, and Mad Men and combines it with abstraction, surrealism, and landscape exploration. The show will open in Portland on August 1, 2013.

In Portland-based artist Adam Friedman's work, rules of perspective, distance, and light are bent. Space can become a solid object and places are folded on top of one another. Millions of years are compacted into a single instant and rocks become fluid.
