Reviews

Radical Decadence addresses decadence and excess, re-framing these as contemporary strategies of transgression and pleasure. In this well-illustrated book, Skelly draws on established and newly emerging artists working with cloth, porcelain and paint, demonstrating the inherent and delightful messiness of these media and their resistance to controlling systems. -- Catherine Dormor, Middlesex University, UK
