Erwin Olaf

Erwin Olaf‘s high gloss photography has a dark twist that I just love.  His Royal Blood and Grief series were my favorite, though all of his sets have quirky themes to them.

Maartje Folkeringa creates decaying figuartive sculptures out of foam. The work reminds me of earlier work by Folkert De Jong who was our cover artist for Issue: V of Beautiful/Decay.

A Day In Decay: The Tampa Express

Dealing with the ups and downs of an independent business can at times be a drag, but getting packages like this in the mail makes all the work worthwhile. I first met Justin B. Nelson when he entered our contest with Colt45. Justin was one of the top ten finalists and his work was entered in our show at Synchronicity Gallery. I loved Justin’s work in the show but was blown away when I met him at the opening. At first I thought Justin had drove an hour or two, but he flew in all the way from Tampa, FL just to check out the show! If that’s not dedication I don’t know what is. Since then, Justin’s been part of the Cult of Decay. We’ve only met each other once but we probably email or send each other tweets at least once a week. It’s amazing to be able to connect with creative people without the restrictions of distance. (The internet kicks ass!)

Anyways back to the package… Yesterday our mailman brought us an envelope all the way from Tampa. it included not only a print of one of my favorite pieces in the Colt45 show but also a note from Justin. It might not seem like much but it’s a great feeling to get feedback like this. We get caught up in all the chaos of running the show and sometimes forget that YOU are out there reading our books, wearing our shirts, and spreading the good word of decay!  I’m glad that you guys are out there. Without your there would be no Beautiful/Decay.

P.S.  You can check out a larger image of Justin’s print after the jump along with his note. You can also get a copy of his sick print here.
