An artist whose shows seem to get better and better, we are looking forward to checking out Casey Gray's new work, Tropic, opening at White Walls Gallery in SF on Saturday, October 12, 2013. The idea of the show is a hypothetical vacation. Each work goes from sourced internet material, to digital sketch, to acrylic on panel. Go check it. 

Preview: Scott Scheidly “The Pinks” @ Spoke Art, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 31, 2013
Spoke Art gallery in San Francisco is pleased to present “The Pinks” a new exhibition of original paintings by Florida, USA-based artist Scott Scheidly. “The Pinks” explores the cultural and social implications of color and how the predefined notions that accompany these perceptions can alter one’s identity and subsequent world view. By incorporating either hyper-masculinized or historically infamous figures, Scheidly further drives the point home, making a mockery of his subjects though biting socio/sexual satire.

Charlie Isoe "In The Bad Bush" @ Lazarides, London

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 25, 2013
We are very excited to see that Australian-born, Berlin-based Charlie Isoe (cover artist from April 2010), is back in the exhibition swing. This Friday, June 28, Isoe will open a new solo show, In the Bad Bush, at Lazarides Gallery's Rathbone space in London. As the gallery notes, "After inexplicably vanishing from the art scene for over three years... [Isoe draws] from the isolation of Western Australia to his itinerant youth and lifestyle of abandon, and quickly established himself as a pioneer in his field."

Preview: DEEDEE CHERIEL @ Merry Karnowsky Gallery, LA

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 18, 2013
This weekend, on June 22, Deedee Cheriel will be opening new works alongside Mel Kadel and Femke Hiemstra at Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles. We were lucky this morning to get a preview and collection of new works from Cheriel, who in her artist statement notes, "With nuances of East Indian art, Cheriel's use of bold elements – both urban and natural, as well as pop culture – are indications of how we try to connect ourselves to others and how these heroic efforts are episodes of compassion and discomfort."

Preview: Oliver Vernon "Renegade Trajectories" @ Joshua Liner, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 28, 2013
Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to present Renegade Trajectories, an exhibition of new paintings and works on paper by Oliver Vernon. This is Vernon’s third solo show with the gallery, and the artist will be present at the opening reception on May 30. Combining elements of landscape painting, figuration, and abstraction, Vernon’s practice pushes all of these categories beyond easy distinction, creating a hybrid visual language all his own. “The picture plane is a continuum of give and take,” says Vernon, “where positive and negative space give way to each other in rhythmic intervals. Energy oscillates and migrates, initiating changes along the way. And color is a navigational tool to guide the eye through the chaotic scape.”
