Currently cross-translating between the visual languages of Indian miniaturist art, Blaxploitation, and the images produced by the Hubble Deep Field Telescope, the work becomes a record of impossible discoveries and mythical creations.

It's Not Milk Paintings by Ivan Alifan

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 07, 2014
This series is an exploration of the modern gaze; of ambiguous figurative paintings that are revealed and transformed within the act of the individuals' views.

Using ambiguity as a tool demands the viewer's exploration of their psyches and provokes self awareness...

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.
