Ciler and Twisted Perspectives of Beauty

Ciler and Twisted Perspectives of Beauty
When you’re looking for dark collage and a disturbing intervention to imagery, Ciler is the man to go to. Brought up in Mexico he left the mexicanism aside, through his work he does not present neither a positive or a colorful reality, Ciler sees the violence, the death and the twisted perspective of beauty in the pre fabricated surroundings we live in.

The final result is established by the energy that arises between the artist and her model, as the artist functions as observer and as identifier. Because Jantina Peperkamp considers all her paintings as self-portraits, and it is very important for the painter to recognize herself in her models.

Drawings by Mathew Borrett: Room Series

Drawings by Mathew Borrett: Room Series
Mathew Borrett’s “Room Series” is very reminiscent of M. C. Escher’s drawings of impossible, mind-bending architectural spaces. Borrett’s drawings creating outlandish, strangely displaced structures forming a dream-driven world of nightmares and fantasies that have an array of details to draw you in and out of the various rooms, exploring their relationships and potential narratives.

Kilian Eng, June 2012
One of our favorite artists of the past three years, Sweden-based Kilian Eng, just released his new book, Object 10, through Floating World Comics. Because we like any good time to check in with Eng and see what new works and projects he has going on, we look back on his interview in the print pages of Juxtapoz in June 2012, where we discuss science-fiction, other universes, and Ligne Claire.

Incredible Anamorphic Portrait Composed of an Entire Room of Objects

Incredible Anamorphic Portrait Composed of an Entire Room of Objects
French artist Bernard Pras’s latest installation is a portrait of Malian actor Sotigui Kouyate. It is anamorphic, meaning it is an illusion that can only be viewed from a specific vantage point. Pras used clothes, paint, wood, rubber, and other objects to fill the entire room and the portrait is only clearly visible through the lens of his camera.
