Michael C. Hsiung

831_1235762554Being 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.

Please credit me as Richard III

830_1235761924I recently discovered “Richard III”‘s cooky portfolio. It’s replete with unknown highly layered symbolic structures and bizarre ideas. Geodesically interesting. This is a snippet of what the artist wrote in an email to us: “Expect 2000 and 1 thank you’s to be delivered in vapor form in a fortnight’s time… or perhaps you would prefer my Lord Humongous style leather riding vest for your commutes to and through the gauntlet that is Hell A.” Pretty great. Visit Richard III myspace site for more!

David Kassan’s Uncanny Likeness

David Kassan paints with the uncanny mimetic virtuosity of Old Masters, verging on the photographic- though his subjects, rather than regal dukes, bejeweled empresses or wealthy patrons, are far less posed, pompous and assuming. Kassan often situates his sitters within the detritus of layered, urban walls, creating a striking reference to past masters while bringing their ideals into the vision of a decidedly contemporary eye.

Kassan will be exhibiting his works March 12- April 4th at Henoch Gallery.

Learning Landscape Math Playground

Project H designers Heleen De Goey and Dan Grossman have completed the construction of the first Learning Landscape math playground at the Kutamba School for AIDS Orphans in Southern Uganda. After nearly 3 weeks on site, they have finished the grid’s construction, and have been tirelessly working with the teachers and students on the implementation and adaptation of the games: “Around The World,” “Match Me,” and others, which teach elementary math concepts. The playground even integrates a bench system for added functionality as outdoor seating or assembly space. 

 

Amazing! Shapes and forms manifest into spatial learning tools. A nice step away from the flatness of textbooks and computer screens. If only there were more of these in the States.

Osmosis TV & Beautiful/Decay Present Robbie Conal!


Artist Profile: Robbie Conal from By Osmosis TV on Vimeo.

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.
