Juxtapoz // Sunday, February 19, 2012
Having this job, you are presented really interesting artwork that expands your mind and makes you appreciate what the creative world is producing at any given time. Rarely have I been more blown away and/or in awe in seeing the mixed-media sculptures of Australia's Patricia Piccinini. Perhaps even disturbed. In a good way.

Hand-Cut Paper Sculptures by Jen Stark

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 15, 2012
One of our current favorite artists is Miami-based Jen Stark, currently featured in a 14-page interview and spotlight in the March 2012 issue of Juxtapoz. Some of our favorite work from Stark are her hand-cut paper sculptures, some that seem to almost explode and permeate off a wall, or create an illusion that the works descend deep into a tunnel of color within the gallery's walls. Stark's work is stunning to see in person.

Man Ray and the God of Virility

Erotica // Friday, February 10, 2012
Man Ray was an American artist who spent most of his career in Paris, France. His Presse-Papier A Priape Priapus marble Paperweight was cast in 1972 in an edition of 500 and was dedicated to Priapus, the God of virility and has obvious sexual connotations. In his usual humourous tone, Man Ray recalled: 'On looking at the photograph of this object people usually asked me the size of the original. More or less like yours, was my reply'
