"The Tearpot" by Johnson Tsang

Juxtapoz // Saturday, January 18, 2014
Maybe tea time can just get a little weirder. We have really been enjoying the bizarre ceramic and sculptural works of Johnson Tsang, and his "Tearpot" just adds to the addiction we have. Tsang currently is showing at the Taipei Yingge Ceramics Museum through Sunday, January 19th, if you happen to be in Taiwan.

Realistic Wood Carvings by Randall Rosenthall

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 15, 2014
At first glance the artwork of Randall Rosenthal seems to be piles of old magazines, newspapers, and boxes of money. Look a little closer and you will (maybe) notice that they are actually carved wood painted in impressive detail! Using only acrylic paint and a single piece of Vermont White Pine, Rosenthal is able to create a realistic looking sculpture solely from his imagination.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 09, 2014
Who says ceramic and porcelain art needs to be tame? Using porcelain as her primary medium, Jessica Stoller will open a body of work, Spoil, at P.P.O.W. in NYC tonight, January 9, 2014. The press release states, "The sculptures in Spoil spill out of decorative materiality into the Rococo maximalist mentality of pageantry, pomp and artifice that are often overlooked as frivolous ploys."

This isn't the first time we have shown both the personal and commercial works of Utrecht, the Netherlands-based artist Merijn Hos on the site before, but we came across a beautiful series of China ink drawings from 2009 and wanted to showcase them alongside other more colorful works. Some many styles, so much to look at.

Hyperreal Noodle Sculptures by Seung Yul Oh

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 06, 2014
One of our favorite pieces of art from 2013's Art Basel Hong Kong was the outside, interactive sculpture, "Periphery", by Seung Yul Oh, on display in the main hall of the Fair. We were happy to see this great project also pop up on the web in recent days, the New Zealand-based, Seoul-born artist's series of hyperreal, resin sculptures of various Korean noodle dishes. Hanging over 12-feet above a gallery floor, Oh not only created the noodles to suspend in air, but the meats, vegetables, and eggs all are hand-crafted and appear edible.

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 30, 2013
Originally published on November 4th, 2013: Singapore-based artist Keng Lye is back with some new resin paingings. By meticulously painting layers of epoxy resin with acrylics, Lye produces works of art that float somewhere between painting and sculpture. Each piece can consist of patiently executed layers which are necessary to create the sense of depth they have. The series is titled Alive Without Breath.
