Arrested Motion just posted their in-depth interview with emerging Canadian artistJacub Gagnon as he prepares to make the trip down to LA for his big ‘Elements and Oddities‘ show which opens this Saturday alongside new works from Japan’s Yosuke Ueno.
“I feel as though there is more to life than we know and this will always be so. I think there are connections and streams of consciousness tying us together in unimaginable ways. In my paintings I try to make these ‘unlikely’ connections, the unimaginable, imaginable, bringing what might seem like unconnected or unlikely paths of life together under a new light.”– Jacub Gagnon
Juxtapoz just interviewed Yosuke Ueno as he prepares for the opening of ‘Elements and Oddities‘, his upcoming show with us alongside Jacub Gagnon that kicks off this coming Sat, April 30th at Thinkspace. Following up on his nearly sold-out solo show with us last year, this new series features some of Ueno’s most heartfelt work yet with several pieces greatly influenced by the recent natural disasters in his home country of Japan.
Liz Brizzimanipulates her original photography onto acrylic painted canvases, then layers each piece with washes of color resulting in strikingly original works of art. Her mixed media paintings aim to cast a light on the lost and forgotten segments of the cities in which we live.
“Her scenes seem like that moment when the sun starts to peak after a summer downpour.” – MyLoveForYou.com
