Daniel Eatock, AKA the co-creator of indexhibit has some interesting participatory projects of his own. This project, “No photographs” asks that people submit photos of signs telling them not to take photographs.
Italian artist Mimmo Rubino, also known as Rub Kandy, plays with the city. His art’s relationship with the city and its citizens is interactive, even fun. His newest project is simple but imaginative. Rubino uses an urban mainstay as a canvas for his spray paint work: a cement truck. While the mixer spins, Rubino keeps a spraying can of paint steady. Repeating the process with various colors eventually covers the mixer in near perfect stripes. Appropriately, the piece is titled Revolver.
Fernanda Veron believes it’s important to sometimes have your head in the clouds, and belong to the past and future while simultaneously remaining in the present. Every moment is fleeting, but Veron is there to document every passing emotion. She asserts that, despite the fact her works seem to resist an existence in a single time frame, they are autobiographical, and perhaps a testimony to her refusal to live solely in the present.
Using dilluted paint and an air compressor, Manuel Fernandez creates fluid landscapes that walk the fine line between abstraction and representation.
John Miller’s representations of urban planning and architecture reminds me of childhood games with mud and found objects belonging to my parentals. And though children no more…we’re all still unable to let go of decadence and blissful ignorance…
Samsøn is proud to present Suzannah Sinclair’s 2nd solo exhibition with the gallery: “Tomorrow is Here” from March 26 – May 1st, 2010: Artist’s Reception Friday, March 26 / 6-8pm
The new ocean paintings are 8 x 11 inches; the size of a page from these same vintage men’s magazines devoid of figures.
“They are sometimes from advertisements trying to convey a warm easy feeling that embody the beauty and stillness that I find in the women I paint. I like the pairing of ‘Sister What a Good Time': landscape, that insane feeling of getting lost in the depths of someone’s eyes or the blue depth of the ocean.”
The works will be installed in an environment complete with lamps, rugs, Bertoia benches and pots/planters with plants setting a stage for comfort, suggestion & space-time. A mirror can be part of a scene without the figure through reflection.
“I like the word ‘quietude’. Just saying…”
Suzannah Sinclair was born in Frankfurt, Germany in 1979 and currently resides in NY, NY

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.
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!
