"If trashpo has taught me anything its that every windblown street corner and cyclone fence is a veritable Dick Blick of free art materials."

DKult was originated by DeVillo Sloan-- a Kult comprised of my 'fans' ---DKulters. He was the only one at the time and possibly even now.   But It has evolved into a friendly neighborhood Kult devoted to the worship of trash and  the creation of…Continue

You are not old Dan merely akid, iam 80 and going strong, still have not learned how to tyoe but there is time.

Martha,

I remember the picture exactly. I still visit our horses out at that farm, 45 minutes from our home in town, two or three times as week even though I haven’t ridden now for over a year. I tell folks that’s because my horse is too old (he’s 33), but it’s really because we’re BOTH too old (I’m 73). I’m glad you still enjoy the picture. 

Now once you get that pool, maybe you should just fill it with some nice water. I can always find a good trash pile somewhere to curl up in.  

xxxooo!!!

Nancy, that picture you mention is from the days when I had not yet joined the Kult. Now I have seen the Trash!

Dan, my trash bath is too small for two. Wait a bit and I will build a swimming pool, with the heat wave we are having it is a must, and you can come over and bring the horses too. Your front pasture photo is beaming from my studio wall. Do you remember the one, with two beautiful horses?

What words are these speaking me out of the Void? The Void’s the Woid!  I need to go back to sleep now. Move over Martha, I’m going to join you and curl up in your trash tub.

xxxooo!!!

You always look clean in your picture to me, Martha.

Comment by Mail Art Martha on August 6, 2019 at 8:04am

Dr Fike, thanks for the advise. I will follow it faithfully. I shall take a bath at least once a month whether I need it or not.

Comment by Mail Art Martha on August 6, 2019 at 8:00am

Dear Your Highness.

I suggest that you avoid reality. A soothing trash bath is prescribed.

I am all for thinking hard, HilgART. And here I am, doing just that because, after having rallied the troops, I cannot but respond, although I have no idea what I am going to tell you. Part of TrashPo is going about Life picking up rubbish from the streets, the market place, one's neighbours dustbins. Then you organize it in a sort of composition but not too composed, the more decomposed the better really, having regard to the sensitive nose of the post persons.

The traditional method of collage is highly suitable to the creation of TrashPo. What is most important is that the final piece has to have not, or does not have to have, even, Sense. Or make it either. Following these simple and clear rules you can make plastic art, write poetry, songs, opera, create sculptures or burn your toast. 

TrashPo was created by Diane as part of DKult, The Cult you can Trash, with De Villo Sloane as one its principal followers. I am only a lowly lay follower. And probably got all I have hereby told you quite wrong. Do what I do; make it up as you go along. Enjoy!

(Wow! I needed this; I have been having too many reality issues lately)
