HE belongs to a group of "secret painters", the group is divided into several smaller sects and one has to discover which the other belongs to. the painters appear to be perfectly ordinary and live in rather empty surroundings. the places are not dirty but contain cheap, synthetic furnishings.most of them have lost all interest in human contact but maintain grueling daily schedules.the purpose of the painters is not  to make a recognizable picture or image. some wear canvas garments which harden into a shell after years of not washing. certain groups are bad news to the established commercial art world while they prepare only rough sketches of proposed secret paintings. these secret painters trade in broken lines of communication, unimaginable chaos and extreme experiences of gain and loss.   signed, acme.

Greetings to all, It has been a long time since I came here , and from what I see the group grew . Must remember that this space is intended primarily to those who use drawing and painting as a tool in the creation of mail art.

By the way , I am currently organizing a Mail Art Call, here is the link for anyone interested.
