Victor Rodriguez

“16 Eyes”: Victor Rodriguez (b. 1970 in Mexico City) is an especially sophisticated oil painter living and working in New York City. Recurring themes in Rodriguez’s work include eyes, Rubik’s cubes, and naked women stretched lithely across the canvas (he also pays homage to Edouard Manet’s ‘Olympia’ painting, that historically tantalizing subject). I am impressed with Rodriguez’s skin tones, interesting compositions and indisputable skill with a paintbrush. For more see his site: http://web.mac.com/victor.rodriguez/


Judith Supine

Judith Supine is a Brooklyn-based street and mixed media artist known for his surreal and technicolor collages, which he posterbombs around Williamsburg and Lower Manhattan with an adhesive mixture called wheatpaste (also known as potato paste, flour paste, rice paste, and Marxist glue). Supine rejects the idea of precious material in his work, instead making beautiful mess from magazines absconded from the trash, a utility knife, cheap glue sticks and an industrial copy machine at Kinko’s. Enlarging the images to an assortment of scales, he then paints these anxious-looking creatures in garish, neon colors and releases them into the metropolis around him.
