Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 09, 2012
Every so often, we like to check in and look at the work of Thomas Keeley, who was featured in our magazine in February 2009, but always has been a touchstone to us in the world of viral, bizarre sculpture art.

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 04, 2012
Lee Stoetzel creates these fantastic near life-sized wooden sculptures of everyday objects, such as Jeep Wranglers, old Mac computers, fast food meals, and VW buses. Okay, a VW bus is not an everyday object, and we haven't eaten fast food in months if not years, but you get what we are saying. The works are made of cypress wood and various bits of hardware to attach everything together.
