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.”
