Daniel Rozin's Interactive "PomPom Mirror"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Daniel Rozin’s anthropomorphic "PomPom Mirror" features a synchronized array of 928 spherical faux fur puffs. Organized into a three-dimensional grid of beige and black, the sculpture is controlled by hundreds of motors that build silhouettes of viewers using computer-vision. Along its surface, figures appear as fluffy animal-like representations within the picture plane, which is made permeable by a ‘push-pull’ forward and backward motion of meshed ‘pixels’.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Yayoi Kusama has brought her seminal installation from 2002, The Obliteration Room, to David Zwirner in New York. Also on view in two spaces, 519 and 525 West 19th Street, are new paintings from the celebrated My Eternal Soul series and new polka-dotted pumpkin sculptures. Widely recognized around the world, with a recent survey of museum attendance ranking her as the most popular artist in 2014, Kusama has shaped her own narrative of postwar and contemporary art. Minimalism and Pop art, abstraction and conceptualism coincide in her practice, which spans painting, sculpture, performance, room-sized and outdoor installations, the written word, films, fashion, design, and architectural interventions.

Nylon Sculptures by Rosa Verloop

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 26, 2015
Dutch artist Rosa Verloop as found an interesting use for stockings. By molding, folding, and squeezing common nylon stockings, Verloop has created interesting, layered facial structures. She uses regular pins to keep the stockings in the shape of a facial structure and her portraits sit at an "uncomfortable place in the life cycle between birth and death."

Update: Intricate Paper Sculptures Rogan Brown

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 19, 2015
Drawing inspiration from natural organic forms, Rogan Brown looks for "patterns and repeated motifs that run through natural phenomena at different scales." Each piece involves a labor-intesive process creating thousands of hand-cut slices. "The finished artefact is really only the ghostly fossilized vestige of this slow, long process of realisation."

Meditative and Surreal Sculptures by Tracey Sarsfield

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 19, 2015
In doing some research yesterday, we came across this amazing body of work that Tracey Sarsfield showed at ANCA Gallery in Dickson, which is a suburb of "Inner North of Canberra, Australia." As MyModernMet notes, "Composed of resin, paint, fiberglass, and vinyl, the figures are connected by a number of bold black wires, which form an intricate pattern along their bodies before extending outward in a profoundly connective fashion."

Using the software Arnold, Lee Griggs created facial blockheads and bubbleheads for his new project Deformations. Taking normal faces and digitally transforming them into some of the most bizarre and interestingly disturbed faces we’ve seen in a long while, Griggs never knows what he’ll get.
