Staedtler pencil sculptures by Lionel Bawden

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 21, 2014
Lionel Bawden constructs elaborate and fluid sculptures strictly with Staedtler pencils. As it is noted on the Australian artist's site, "Bawden’s core practice exploits hexagonal coloured pencils as a sculptural material, reconfigured and carved into amorphous shapes, mining the material’s rich qualities of colour, geometry and metaphor."

Stefanie Rocknak Carves Sculptures From a Single Piece of Wood

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 15, 2014
Artist and Philosophy Professor Stefanie Rocknak takes a single piece of basswood and carves beautiful sculptures. The Swimmer is part of a three piece commission called The Triathlete which will also include a biker and runner. "These days," says Rocknak, "I am not very interested in sculpted figures, or real people, that 'strike a pose.' I am much more intrigued by folks who are on their way to or from somewhere. They seem more genuine to me."

“East-West/West-East": Richard Serra in Qatar

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 11, 2014
Eerily placed in a quiet desert 60km outside of Doha at the Brouq Nature Reserve near Zekreet in Qatar, Richard Serra's magnificent "East-West/West-East" sculpture installation has now been unveiled. We say "eerie" in the Kubrick sense, monoliths left to wonder in a desert landscape, four steel plates that stand 49 feet tall that are set to be permanent fixtures in the reserve for the foreseeable future. Stunning work.

The Art of Mister Finch

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 07, 2014
Landing somewhere between sculpture, textiles and artisan stuffed-animal-making, Mister Finch is an anomaly in the field of makers--huge, beautiful embroidered and stuffed insects and animals is what he makes en masse. But these creatures are much more than stuffed animals. Hailing from some magic realm of the guilded and antique, these huge dusty moths, spiders, mushrooms and rabbits take on a wonderfully sophisticated, charming character.
