Preview: Jeremy Fish "Where Hearts Get Left" @ FIFY24SF Gallery, SF

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 13, 2012
Last week, we headed over to Jeremy Fish's San Francisco studio to check out all the new work he was preparing for his exhibition, Where Hearts Get Left, opening Saturday, July 14, at FIFTY24SF Gallery. The show, featuring new paintings, sculptures, drawings, a new book, and a six screenprints, is all built around the concept of "a visual love letter to San Francisco," where Fish noted, "I am begging her to not become a sterile West Coast Manhattan any time soon. What are the constants? What are the things I will always love about SF no matter what happens?”

Preview: Cindy Sherman @ San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 13, 2012
They are questions that I don’t like to answer, or even think about, ones I mulled over and over when I visited Cindy Sherman’s retrospective at MoMA this past Spring and again when the exhibition was moved to SFMOMA this Summer (opening on Saturday, July 14). Who is Cindy Sherman? Who is the real Cindy Sherman? I don’t like that it even comes up in my head. What she is, on the surface, is a photographer, model, stylist, filmmaker, and wardrobe artist....

AARON ROSE’S FIRE SALE @ Known Gallery, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 06, 2012
Beautiful Loser curator, artist, filmmaker, and musician Aaron Rose has been involved many art projects over the years, and was a major figure in NYC's underground art scene in the 1990s. Since, he has moved to Los Angeles and has a "big black box of 1990?s memories" in storage space in Glendale, and now he is having a fire sale. At a gallery. Known Gallery. Which makes it sort of an exhibition fire sale if we were being clear.

Newer Works by Kent Williams

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 02, 2012
We just did a little check up on one of our favorite painters, Los Angeles painter Kent Williams and what he has been working on over the past few years. As you can see, he has been creating some dense, dreamy canvases. We also love that in his bio it mentions that Meg White has collected his work.

Kasia Domanska "Endless Summer" @ Gallery 532 Thomas Jaeckel, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 28, 2012
When we think of Warsaw, Poland, we don't always think of an endless summer, but Polish painter Kasia Domanska has created a powerfully bright series of oil on canvas works documenting a day at the beach that is currently on display at 532 Thomas Jaeckel in NYC through July 3, 2012. Each painting captures a fleeting moment of youth and light, works that capture a sense of innocent voyeurism.
