Beautiful/Decay is excited to present Issue Y, specially timed to coincide with, and to celebrate, the sheer explosion of creative activity surrounding the Miami art fairs. With that in mind, we are spotlighting a great selection of talents deserving attention as we move towards the exciting, and at times overwhelming, art fair season.

The features within this issue are roughly united through the artists’ idiosyncratic explorations of humor and irony within a postmodern dialogue. Whether this manifests in the works’ formal qualities or in their underlying conceptual frameworks, Issue Y demonstrates the multitudinous potentials for play, sarcasm, and wit within contemporary practices.

Kevin Francis Gray presents his mischievously macabre sculptural riffs on classical busts and mortuary effigies, while David Hevel discusses the inspiration behind his Baroquely maximalist glam rock craft-embellished taxidermy. Colin Chillag divulges the creative process behind his Hieronymus Bosch-meets-Where’s Waldo? compositions that playfully attempt to systematize esoteric concepts through ironically facetious information systems. Sacred Mtn. creator Scott Barry works in a similar fashion, updating the freewheeling retro-kitsch imagery, clean lines, and pop sensibility of the 60’s and 70’s. Lilly McElroy and Laurel Nakadate create outlandish performances that unwittingly solicit the participation of strangers as auxiliary characters, resulting in surprising scenarios that complicate traditional gender roles and sex. Olaf Breuning showcases a specially created photo essay of his purposefully preposterous tableaux vivants that instill absurd ideas with explorations into artifice and authenticity, reality and illusion.
