The Sculptures of Gehard Demetz

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 21, 2012
In just a few years, Gehard Demetz has risen to international prominence by applying incredible craftsmanship as a traditional woodcarver to subjects that are new and appealing to contemporary viewers. His sculptures of children are at the same time attractive and disquieting, rendered with a perfection that is by no means rhetorical or classical.

The Dissecting Works of Michael Mapes

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 18, 2012
New York artist Michael Mapes is a collector. Well, maybe not your typical one. His art is inspired by scientific specimen collections. His photographs themselves question the logic behind the organization of each piece. By dissecting and then compartmentalizing individual fragments within plastic bags, glass vials, magnifiers, and on insect pins, he has created a "biographical DNA"...

The Information Leak by Richard Evans

Juxtapoz // Sunday, September 16, 2012
"My aim was to visually represent the way information is accessed in today's society -through the internet and television- an endless torrent of media is accessible as easy as turning on a tap..."

Book Sculptures by Susan Hoerth

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 14, 2012
We need to think of a better name than book sculptures, but Susan Hoerth transforms childhood fairy tales and book, excerpts characters and illustrations, and makes them appear to be "jumping off the pages." Maybe this is how we get kids to read and appreciate the wonderous world of print.

Working With Feathers: The Art of Kate MccGwire

Juxtapoz // Sunday, September 09, 2012
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 being, to our senses and our reason, and by drawing on materials capable of embodying a dichotomous way of seeing, feeling, and thinking.

Magazine Sculptures by David Mach

Juxtapoz // Saturday, September 01, 2012
We know Scottish-based artist David Mach for his coat hanger work and matchstick sculptures (we posted them on the site before), but now we know what he does with his old magazines: he makes gallery sized sculptures with them. We just hope there is a Juxtapoz or 10 in there somewhere. 

Oil Can Dragon (2011) by Qiu Zhijie

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
This works on many levels. Chinese artist, Qiu Zhijie, created the Oil Can Dragon, a public sculpture that featured, you guessed it, oil cans reorganized and re-imagined into a dragon. In 2011, the oil can dragon was was placed at the doors of the CAFA Biennale art exhibition in Beijing, and as we just read, in traditional Chinese culture, use of oil drums suggests a tension between the natural and modern worlds.

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 24, 2012
One of the artists that we are excited to meet at Nuart this year is Aakash Nihalani, who has taken a very interesting, geometric, often illusionary approach to public and street work. Recently, he was on Long Island for the Lisa de Kooning Artist in Residence program, and the result of his work is quite impressive.
