Islands is a series of sculptures showing miniature snapshots of life. Isolated pieces of land, that look like they were wrenched from the earth by some force of nature, are floating through nowhere. All that is left is a random group of living beings who do their best to survive. For more sculptures, photo projects and installations visit The Rainbow Monkeys!
Being an only child I’ve always been jealous of talented siblings who can team up to take over the world. So it is with great saddness and extreme envy that I post the work of the talented Michael C. Hsiung, brother of Pearl C. Hsiung who graced the pages of Issue: V with her brilliantly disgusting yet pretty paintings.
Beautiful/Decay teamed up with By Osmosis TV to create a unique video artist profile on Robbie Conal. Conal’s searing political caricatures fuse iconography and symbols from pop culture, current media and his own imagination. We are frequent collaborators with Robbie- most recently he contributed a beautiful skeleton-dance glitter painting to our current retrospective show, “Beautiful/Decay: A to Z.” You can see Robbie working on the piece in his studio in the video– as well as discussing his artwork and philosophy! We’re thrilled to be working with By Osmosis on a number of upcoming projects, including another artist profile, as well as a piece on the history of Beautiful/Decay magazine. If you’re unfamiliar with By Osmosis, they are a boutique production company, specializing in profiling innovative creatives.
Thanks again to everyone who came out to check out our booth at Pool. We were pleasantly surprised to see a number of buyers reppin’ the B/D gear! More shots of our booth and the lovely people who stopped by after the jump!
I feel like if Harm van den Dorpel’s gave a seminar about his work that he would be completely deadpanned and really matter-of-fact about it. Even though some of them look like 20-minute photoshop exercises, I can’t help but be mystified.
With Thousands of visitors the Agenda show was a huge success despite the dismal economy. Thanks to all the buyers who stopped by the booth. Keep an eye out for B/D’s Spring season coming to a shop near you in March.
