Decor–active Decadent Stupidity is a collection of visual thinking and represents a snap shot of studio practice at any given time and often includes work in progress. The content is dependent upon prevailing curiosity but installations mainly consist of: paintings, drawings, journals, artists' books, lomography and photography, pin badges and sometimes bunting and hand painted signs; drawn together in a blaze of colour and exhibited in a wide range of locations including beach huts, public houses, cafés, galleries, magazines and books.

Additional Information:In 2009 a selection of work from GRRR's Decor–active Decadent Stupidity was commissioned and created for the book: VERY FUNNY! a 600 page publication created by Vienna based Rosebud, Inc. and published by Verlag für moderne Kunst Nürnberg (Germany). VERY FUNNY! following in the wake of Dada, Fluxus, satire and the grotesque, presents brainwaves and fallouts from biting to the ironic in words and pictures. This latest edition of +rosebud compiles countless contributions by international designers, photographers, copy writers and illustrators into a garish, shrill compendium.
