Sculptures by Roger Reutimann

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 18, 2013
This morning we feature the sculptural work of Boulder, Colorado-based artist Roger Reutimann. Raised in Switzerland, in his teens Reutimann was first recognized as a classically trained concert pianist before training as a sculptor and artist in Zurich. Believing art lets him communicate an idea on 'a deeper, emotional level,' his influences are drawn from social issues and cultural scrutiny.

Sculptures by Ishibashi Yui

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 16, 2013
Tokyo-based artist Ishibashi Yui's sculptures are unsettling and beautiful. Her figures seem to have submitted to the plants and branches protruding and growing from their bodies, as if they have accepted their fate and are not sure if they even have the ability to fight or prevent the inevitable.

Kollektiv Plus Zwei's Sculptures Look Like Giant Candy

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 03, 2013
Stefanie Högl and Matthias Borowski are kollektiv plus zwei. For the project, "The Importance of the Obvious," they have chosen to look at the dormant potential of materials and how they could be put to use. "First I've taken a close look at food, which, although itself a material, requires entirely different and often unique or experimental preparation methods...Attracted by the material characteristics of candies, I translated their colours, textures, layering, and expressions into designs."

The candy buildings will be on display at Dylan's Candy Bar at Art Basel this year.

The Work of Kate McCgwire

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 02, 2013
'Kate MccGwire's practice probes the beauty inherent in duality, exploring the play of opposites - at an aesthetic, intellectual and visceral level - that characterises the way we conceive the world. She does this by appealing to our essential duality as human beings, to our senses and our reason, and by drawing on materials capable of embodying a dichotomous way of seeing, feeling and thinking. The finished work has a consistent 'otherness' to it that places it beyond our experience of the world, poised on a threshold between the parameters that define everyday reality.'
