“From a height of three meters, porcelain figurines are dropped on the ground, and the sound they make when they hit trips the shutter release. The result: razor-sharp images of disturbing beauty—temporary sculptures made visible to the human eye by high-speed photography technology. The porcelain statuette bursting into pieces isn’t what really captures the attention; the fascination lies in the genesis of a dynamic figure that replaces the static pose. In contrast to the inertness of the intact kitsch figurines Klimas started out with, the photographs of their destruction possess a powerfully narrative character.” (text from martin-klimas.de)
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.
Robert Williams signed books all day long for an endless line of fans on March 28 at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. His new book, SLANG Aesthetics!, serves as an exhibition guide to the comprehensive retrospective by the same name. The exhibit opened last February at the same venue where the signing took place. It’s on view through April 19 in tandem with Juxtapoz Magazine’s anniversary group show, “20 Years Under the Influence of Juxtapoz.” SLANG Aesthetics! covers Williams’ expansive career as an artist, a founder of Juxtapoz, and arguably the godfather of low brow art and culture.
