“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.

Wooden Sculptures by Paul Kaptein

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 20, 2014
"My work is broadly concerned with the agency of the present moment. By sampling various cultural and temporal trajectories, I’m exploring the notion of the now as a remix of past and future potentialities. This facilitates a renegotiation of perceptual truths resulting in an expression of things not quite truth, yet not quite fiction..."
