In honor of Black Friday, here are some electric shopping slogans and abstracted commodities by Sylvie Fleury. What will you shop for today? Or not? Shoes. Ohmigod Shoes. Let’s get some shoes.
Amie Dicke creates bizarre voodoo ancient magical totems of infinitely suffering souls.
While you’re with your family yawning over Triptophan-turkey food comas slumped into your pumpkin pie, why not surprise everyone and inject your holiday with a little ROCK! Maybe try jumping on the table and singing “Pinball Wizard” from The Who’s “Tommy.” Really, nothing beats Elton John as a pinball-hat, giant glasses, stilted piano-playing wizard battling a satin-chained Roger Daltry.
Somethin’ weird and awkward about Eric Lebofsky’s drawings and paintings. I like his descriptions for the series he creates too: “A selection of drawing work from the earlier to middle part of this decade. Topics broached: systems of measure, schadenfraude, genetics, underwear, psychoanalysis, prison tattoos, man-shaped ice cream sandwiches, solipsism, violent rainbows, intercourse (sexual and verbal,) Arthur C. Clarke, C.S. Lewis, Ashkenazic DJ’s, The Upper East Side, and more.”
2009 has been a challenging year for all of us at Beautiful/Decay. We’ve switched formats, weathered the global financial meltdown, and moved to a new office (we’re almost unpacked!). Even with all these changes and challenges we have a lot to be thankful for. I wanted to take a second a our loyal and dedicated readers (that’s you!) for the constant feedback, participation, and support over the last year.
We have lots of exciting projects and ideas up our sleeves for the coming years and can’t wait to share them with all of you. Have a great thanksgiving everyone!
ps. My mom cooks the meanest Tofurky ever. Thanks Mom!
Satan as a headless-masquerade holding ghost on an abandoned island floating in the deep, dark void of space creating life from clay and striking them down, all in front of tiny children. Yes! Amazing excerpt from a stop motion version of Mark Twain’s Mysterious Stranger, by Will Vinton. Censored from many TV stations. Yes!
Subtly hilarious paintings by New York residing Leidy Churchman.
