Do Ho Suh’s ‘Infinitely’ Repeating Sculpture

Do Ho Suh Sculpture6 Do Ho Suh Sculpture5

Do Ho Suh Sculpture4

Korean artist Do Ho Suh has often explored thoughts on collective strength (and perhaps weakness) in his work before.  However, his new sculpture Karma addresses a more personal collectivity.  This enormous sculpture seems to stretch on perpetually.  At the sculpture’s base a man stands with his eyes covered by another man crouching on his back.  That man’s eyes are also covered by another man crouching on his back and this pattern appears to repeat ad infinitum.  Perhaps a literal visual interpretation of the concept of karma or even the saying ‘history is doomed to repeat itself’.

A Day In Decay: New B/D Site And Shop Feedback

It took us nearly 6 months to get the new B/D site and shop up and running, so getting it off the ground was a huge relief for me and the other cult members over here at the office. Making the shop was relatively easy, as we do a lot of web related projects through our design agency Something In The Universe but we haven’t packed and shipped our own products for our online shop since 2003! Until now we’ve worked with various fulfillment companies to run our online shop. While these fulfillment companies did a good job we always felt a big disconnect with our biggest asset, our readers and fans (that’s YOU!)  Sure, it’s nice to have someone else handle the packing and shipping of orders but we had zero interaction with the people that truly care about what we do. Being able to write a hand written note to a shopper when they buy our favorite shirt, or send them a few stickers for free, or toss a random ‘zine in your order just to make their day is what it’s all about. These are all little things that might not matter to bigger companies but they make a difference to us.

I never got into this to make a quick buck, so it’s a great feeling to finally connect with all the other creative memebers of the Cult Of Decay throughout the world. Our first week of shipping had a few glitches but we’re already getting a great response from you. It’s amazing to get so much positive feedback in less than a week! I sent out a package on Tuesday and by Friday I get a Tweet thanking us for the order. Technology is amazing! We got some big plans for the upcoming months so make sure to sign up for our email list to get special discount codes, updates on sales, artists interviews and a whole assortment of other B/D news that we can’t release just yet.

Also, if you missed this in earlier blog posts we’re giving you 15% off Book 4 until the end of this week. Just use Use discount code: BDECAYBOOKCULT.

So a big shout out to the entire Cult of Decay no matter where you are. We’re a small group brought together by our love for pushing the envelope, creating amazing things, and doing things our own way.  Long live the Cult Of Decay!

More feedback after the jump!

Daniel Zeller

zellerinvasiveseclusion1

Daniel Zeller’s practice involves meticulous and obsessive pattern making creating forms that resemble maps, isolated body parts, and blood streamed arteries. I’m drawn by the labor intensive repetition, its lingering between sci-fi staging and topographical landscape, and the undulating and vibrating ebb and flow of each compacted form. Step close to the surface and be astounded by the articulate and precise thin lines, step back and let your eyes adjust to the accumulated network of organisms pulsing throughout the picture plane.

Joshua Petker’s “Adrift” at LeBasse Projects

a-joshua-petker_lebasse-projects_adrift_daniel-rolnik_shipwreck

Joshua Petker has taken a leap of faith so brave that most artists would rather cower at their easels for an infinitum than ever attempt. Yet, he has not only landed successfully, but also staked his claim on an entirely new ground of possibilities, which proves that one can always reinvent themselves whilst still staying true to their initial spirit. After roughly 4 years of painting the exquisite portraits of women he has come to be known for, he has almost entirely exchanged it all for a deeper, richer, and much more personally satisfying subject matter. So, when you walk through the gallery doors at LeBasse Projects in Culver City, you’re not greeted by a woman, but rather a shipwreck. A metaphor that ignites your imagination into so many realms that it’s impossible to choose simply one, since your eye will follow the ship as it circles round a blackened sphere with a rim of color — entrancing you into a deep meditation. However, the most awesome and powerful piece to me was that of a monster storming out from behind an apple tree. It’s face, drafted in an impressionistic rendering of fat colored lines bursting from a beige canvass. Joshua Petker has done what many would consider to be the impossible, so bravo Joshua, bravo!
