Decker will be speaking in support of his solo exhibition “Derby and His Badges” on view at Ornametum Gallery July 16 – August 14.


Derby and His Badges

i have fallen in love with plastic toys
and cannot seem to let them go
i love blue, yellow and red ones
but the wooly ones feel  best
in my hands.
A police badge
a toy gun or plane
my polaroid camera and its floppy neckpiece
i was told metal toys are best
but these recollections will do.
