Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 13, 2012
As we like to treat most major art fairs, we love just taking a quiet walkthrough all the different booths, halls, and exhibition spaces and just soak it all in. Of course, The Armory Show was the main event in NYC this past weekend, and with strong showings from Kaikai Kiki, V1, and then the entire Nordic Countries fair, here is our walkthrough recap of the entire fair. 

Manimal Sculptures by Kate Clark

Don't worry they are just here to creep you out and stare at you." These are the work of Brooklyn's Kate Clark, who has work currently on display at Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville as part of Fairy Tales, Monsters, and the Genetic Imagination.

Killian Skarr's Torture Sculpture

Erotica // Wednesday, February 22, 2012
Killian Skarr creates sculptures from wood, found hardware, leather, and bone. During heightened states of awareness brought about through clinical mania and intoxicants he wields a chainsaw, a blowtorch and a myriad of other power tools in a frenzy of mad invention. The end result of this process being aesthetically compelling, fully functional devices of torture and restraint.

The Eerie Mixed-Media Sculptures of Patricia Piccinini

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.
