One of our profiled artists in our March 2011 issue, Derek Weisberg, has a solo show, Auroral Dreaming, at Anno Domini in San Jose, California through March 19. The show features some fantastic installations and sculptures, both life-sized and smaller. Images after the jump . . .
Just when you think art can't go any farther, someone makes a underwater sculpture installation that doubles as a coral reef. Not to just in one place either, but in multiple bodies of water across the world. And then you just have to say, Jason de Caires Taylor, you are on the trip of something else.

Our Contributing Photo Editor, Sam Bassett, is an expert in Sacred Geomery, aka, geometric shapes in the form of tape, done throughout the streets and indoors in Manhattan. As we look further into Bassett's art prior to his Juxtapoz Presents Profile later this week, we find an incredible output of Sacred Geometry. More after the jump . . .
This piece by David Herbert is quite genius. The "VHS Sculpture," as a black monolith, citing 2001: A Space Odyssey on the sculpture? A fantastic piece. You almost want to see a full David Herbert decorated home, because it would be smartly done. More after the jump . . .
Chris Ritson's solo show In the Kingdom of Charisma opens tonight at Evergold Gallery in San Francisco. In their first biyearly residency program, Chris Ritson has built site specific installations by growing crystals, organisms and creating media collages. I stopped by Evergold last night and shot some preview photos of what Chris has been working on over the last 3 weeks. More after the jump . . .
First, to get into the work of Gelitin, you should read their bio: "gelitin is comprised of four artists. they met first in 1978, when they all attended a summercamp. they have been playing and working together. from 1993 they began exhibiting internationally." We are very intrigued by their 2009 show, Klunk Garden, at Koyama Gallery in Tokyo. Images after the jump . . .
We are going Ancient Olympic Games here with a discus, in the vein of the 5th century BC Myron statue, Discobolus. Los Angeles-based Tofer Chin has put a contemporary skin on the ancient activity, with this oil on fiberglass sculptor titled DIscus Thrower. More views after the jump . . .
Toy Art Gallery is proud to present "Sacred Trip", new work by Carlos Enriquez Gonzalez. "Sacred Trip" continues Gonzalez's exploration of the divide (or lack thereof) between Man and God, man and woman, and toy and art. More after the jump . . .
Wow, this is really good, interesting sculpture work. Chinese artist Xiang Jing, based in Beijing, has been collected by Charles Saatchi, and has shown in major exhibitions around the world. And really, all we can say is wow. Fantastic work. More after the jump . . .

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.
