Hernan Bas: Creature Comforts @ Perrotin, Paris
There are those artists who enjoy a fervid fan base among their peers.  Neo Rauch, Jenny Saville and Kerry James Marshall share eminence as painters’ painters, for example. in recent years, a few new names have crept into the conversation, and one frequently mentioned is American artist, Hernan Bas, who just opened his fifth solo with Perrotin in Creature Comforts at their Paris space. I can think of numerous times, in fact, when I have seen a Bas painting at an art fair and brought to a standstill, mesmerized by the details and slightly sinister nature of the paintings. He's good, and a sinewy tension brands through each work.

Something to celebrate in 2020 would be the stunning spotlight on contemporary African artists opening shows around the world.  Back in 2008, Juxtapoz traveled to South Africa to document the continent’s first contemporary art fair in Johannesburg, and what we found was a mixture of highly conceptual, sculptural work, but not a plethora of figurative paintings. Wow, what a difference a younger generation makes! The incredible talent in representational painters from contemporary Africa has captivated an audience, and as the body itself continues to be explored in the coming years, as both a subject and political statement, Africa is fast-becoming the influential pulse.
