Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin's Gingerbread Architecture

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 03, 2013
Re-creating museums such as the Guggenheim, The Louvre, and the Tate Modern, artist Henry Hargreaves and stylist Caitlin Levin carefully baked, glued, cooked, carved, assembled (and hopefully eventually get to eat) these detailed gingerbread "houses!" 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.'

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 28, 2013
Calvin Seibert, aka Box Builder, creates these cool and crisp architectural studies of archetypal urban planning, exploring classic forms, cubism, brutalism, mid-eastern mosaic forms and abstract mosaic forms, all just with a few simple tools and some sand!

Nick Cave's Soundsuits

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 26, 2013
American fabric sculptor, dancer, and performance artist Nick Cave is best known for his incredible Soundsuits: wearable fabric sculptures that are bright, whimsical, and other-worldly. Using everything from twigs and human hair to plastic, beads, and feathers, many of the suits resemble African ceremonial costumes and masks. Chicago-based, Cave is currently the director of the graduate fashion program at School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Sculptures by Bruno Catalano

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 25, 2013
Bruno Catalano is a French artist whose sculptures are often missing pieces. The human figures are travelers heading towards unknown destination, lacking important pieces but still standing. It's as if someone took the Photoshop "eraser" tool to them! Mr. Catalano was born in Morocco and a lifetime as a sailor inspired him to make these intriguing sculptural works.

AJ Fosik "Against the Infinite" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 22, 2013
Once again, AJ Fosik's work just looks stunning and some of the most original fine art sculptures made today. Against the Infinite marks the third solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery for the Portland, Oregon based artist, and as the gallery notes, the new work explores themes of "mortality and invention with imagery such as skulls, exposed ribcages, tools and weaponry including sickles, swords, hammers and stakes."

Edouard Martinet's Insect Sculptures

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
Part of a car, bicycle, umbrella, compass, typewriter, clock, compass, the list of materials that French artist Edouard Martinet uses to construct his insect sculptures is as random at varied as it gets. The artist does not solder or weld parts but assembles them with the precision of a watchmaker, screwing them together and taking around a month per sculpture. His first took him four weeks and 17 years for his most recent!

Bizarre, Fleshy Sculptures by Francesco Albano

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
We're not sure what type of creature these piles of sagging, deformed, empty skin belonged to but we sure don't want to meet them. Reminding us slightly of certain Asger Carlsen photos, these sculptures by Francesco Albano are certainly disturbing. Albano sees the skin as the nearest boundary between internal and external identity, a kind of storage space, and "bone" as a stable structure that sustains our physical presence and makes us complete.

David McCracken's Never-Ending Staircase

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 20, 2013
This seemingly never-ending staircase titled Diminish and Ascend is the work of artist David McCracken. Part of Bondi, Australia's annual Sculpture by the Sea event, the installation is an optical illusion that plays with perspectives and from certain angles appears to continue endlessly into the clouds!
