Opening: Delta "Surface" @ Backslash, Paris

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 17, 2012
Backslash is proud to announce Surface, the first solo show by Dutch artist Boris Tellegen—better known by his DELTA tag—to be held at the gallery. His installations, wood and paper collages and photographs take the visitor on a journey into a constructed universe where the intersection between the real and the conceptual is anchored in a geometrical style based on reversed perspectives.

Edwin Deen: Rainbow Spray Paint Sprinkler

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 06, 2012
Dutch artist Edwin Deen's spray paint sprinkler system that shoots rainbow colors at white walls in order to make a better drippy day has been circulating throughout the web over the past year, and we finally did some investigation about a video of the work, and came across it this morning. Now, if you ever need your bedroom, or perhaps your child's bedroom, covered in rainbows, we have somebody for you to commission. The effect is quite wonderful.

Beyond the Body by Imme van der Haak

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Dutch artist Imme van der Haak is behind the project, Beyond the Body, where "photos of the human body are printed onto translucent silk which will create the possibility of physically layering different body’s, ages, generations and identities." The results are a bit jarring, intriguing, especially in the video, where the dancing actors with the silk over their bodies confuses your perception of identity and, in our most honest assesment, the age of the performer.

The Nylon Sculptures of Rosa Verloop

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 09, 2012
An interesting use of a stocking. Dutch artist Rosa Verloop has created these fantastic nylon sculptures, where she has taken common stockings and molded. folded, squeezed, and created interesting, layered facial structures. She uses regular pins to keep the stockings in the shape of a facial structure. 

Triangle Superheroes by Inge Jalink

Juxtapoz // Sunday, June 03, 2012
All it takes are a couple hundred triangles. Dutch graphic designer and illustrator, Inge Jalink, takes the simplest of geometrtic shapes and creates portraits of household names in the superhero department. We think Batman is by far our favorite.

Anatomy Revealed by Koen Hauser

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 24, 2012
These are fantastic digital manipulations by Dutch artist, Koen Hauser. As part of the series, Modische Atlas der Anatomie, Hauser takes a female subject, photographs her body in certain frozen poses, and then digitally adds/removes her skin to reveal organs and internal body structures.

The Chewing Gum Sculpture

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 17, 2012
This is the true meaning of collaboration, even if it is a little disgusting. Two art schools in the Netherlands, Eindhovense School and SintLucas, collaborated on a chewing gum sculpture (already chewed) that seems to resemble some sort of victory, glory, and/or triumph. Weird, our rival high school used to just thrown milk bombs at us during the football games.

The Giant Rubber Duckie by Florentijn Hofman

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 26, 2012
What we especially like about the gigantic Rubber Duckie that floats around the world, the creation of Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman, is that there is no political message or grand scheme behind it. It was just made to make people feel better. As the artist states, "The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them." We don't know whether to cry or call shenanigans.

The Work of Collin van der Sluijs

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 16, 2011
On just a nice random search today, we got stopped on the work of Dutch artist, Collin van der Sluijs. The artist simply describes his work as personal pleasures and struggles in daily life. We in particular liked his paintings, with a nice attention for detail and raw portrait work.

Letterproeftuin in Rotterdam

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 16, 2011
Today, much of graphic design is done on the computer. Type, graphics, and lay out are no longer handmade decisions, rather hand-clicked decisions. Letterproeftuin takes it back to traditional graphic techniques and explores the possibilities in this field of old graphic design practices, having designers come together for one week in a self made laboratory.
