Abstract Paintings by Mark Stebbins

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 24, 2013
We are very much enjoying the work of Toronto-based artist Mark Stebbins this morning. His dense, abstract compositions combine references to the domains of craft, fine art and digital imaging. Rather than use a computer, Stebbins creates his images by hand, opting for an organic, personal and labor-intenstive method, providing a metaphor "for the cultural information transmitted via both traditional craft labor and contemporary electronic visual practices.

Preview: Jen Stark "Vortextural" @ Cooper Cole, Toronto

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 01, 2013
One of our favorite artists, Jen Stark, is set to open a solo show, Vortexural, at Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto this Friday, July 5. As the gallery notes, Jen Stark's work is distinct and undeniably recognizable for its cyclical, colourful, op-art attributes. Stark fuels her craftsmanship with inspiration drawn from an interest in mathematics, natural organisms, and outer space. Optical illusions, colour gradations, and repetition play key roles in her sculptural works. The visual outcome is optically alluring and generates an ambiance of the surreal. These bold, colourful installations suggest a fantastical, psychedelic atmosphere and welcomes the viewer into the realm of Stark's imagination.
