Chie Yoshii’s rich, color-saturated paintings focus on classical themes and mythology. See more from her current show, “In The Mere Darkness of Being,” at Roq La Rue in Seattle on Hi-Fructose.

Jane Radstrom is a painter from Austin, Texas, who creates figurative double exposure drawings and paintings. She captures expression and complex gestures through layering multiple versions of the same figure in a single setting. Her unique timelapse techniques illustrate movement and become a deeper exploration into her subjects’ mannerisms and body language. The expressive marks that make up her paintings are a mix of pastels, oil paints thinned with paint thinner, and a wax medium blended on smooth paper.

Since we introduced Russian artist Ivan Solyaev on our blog in 2011, the artist has created some beautifully nightmarish artworks that continue his exploration of haunting silhouettes. While sticking to a mostly monochromatic palette, Solyaev has produced some works in color — perhaps a glimpse into his mutant world in daylight. The monochromatic works glow with an X-Ray-like contrast that illuminates the contours of the amorphous organic forms. Take a look at the new work below, images courtesy of Ivan Solyaev.

Japanese artist Marefumi Komura creates textured, expressive portraits with an arresting presence. With their faces obscured and mouths agape, the subjects appear in states of agony — Komura’s loose, generous brushstrokes make them appear disfigured or swathed in gauze or fabric. This style stems from Komura’s reaction to the 2011 earthquake and nuclear disaster in Japan, when the artist visited the devasted areas and saw the destruction firsthand. Take a look at some of the paintings below, images courtesy of Marefumi Komura.

Photographer Rik Garrett created a fleshy body of work entitled Symbiosis. This series explores ideas of companionship, love, and the interaction between two people existing in a close physical relationship. To create these symbiotic images the artist applied flesh tone acrylic paint directly to the surface of the intimately small photographs.

Continuing his exploration of vice and cruelty through a naive guise, Victor Castillo(featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 23) will open a new solo show at Los Angeles’ Merry Karnowsky Gallery on February 2. Titled “Under Heavy Measures,” the new body of work features paintings on canvas, paintings on paper and fiberglass sculptures. Castillo explores social injustice and political strife in his work through a cast of storybook-like characters that appear at once sinister and childlike. For this new series, he utilizes a bubblegum-colored palette that illuminates the dark content of his work as well as his painstaking painting process that involves aggregating hundreds of layers of color to create the illusion of depth. Take a look at our preview of the show below, images courtesy of Merry Karnowsky Gallery.  MORE: http://hifructose.com/2013/01/31/preview-victor-castillos-under-heavy-measures-at-merry-karnowsky-gallery/
